    This is most likely a ridiculous question, but worth a shot. With a plethora of 2nd Gen rear bumpers for sale online at cheap prices, has anyone, does anyone know, or are there any Ford techs that would know if it’s possible to retrofit a 2nd Gen rear bumper on a 1st gen? Aside from the slimmer profile, adding a dual rear exit exhaust that lines up with the cutouts and still works with the factory backup sensors would be pretty interesting. With average prices in the $300-$400 range if it was minor bracketry mods, it’d be a pretty nice look!

    I asked ADD this same thing out of curiosity. They said no way would it fit. The curve and dimensions were too off.

    I figured as much, I’d considered calling them or N-fab as well. After one too many crayons I thought worth asking.

    we were just talking about this on facebook FRF and I went out and took pictures of the gen 2 bumper. the mounts are close but the big issue is the corners. the corners of the gen2 fit into the fender under the taillight. effectively you would need to have fiberglass to make these fit at all.
