2000 E-250 Front bumper and grill needed

Didn't want to hijack the other bumper thread going on.

My wife was cut off by a car on the 405 who then slammed into a previous rear end giving her no time to stop and rear in the car that cut her off. So long story short I am on the hook for the deductible for a new front bumper, outer bumper plastic and grills and some paint. Reading the other threads I am thinking of ordering black front and back bumpers and looking for the horizontal after market grill I have seen on some vans. Anyone familiar with a supplier? Does anyone have the black bumpers on their smb? Would like to see photos as I am still milling around with the idea or just having the shop return to stock.

Thanks

Johnny

Search for "billet grille" - I think that's likely the "horizontal grille" you are talking about.

You won't find it cheaper than this! I got this same one (for twice the price, which I still thought was a good deal) and painted it.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Billet-Grille-I ... 7f&vxp=mtr

They sell a black one but it's harder to find and way expensive.

For bumpers, I'd check CL, Pull-A-Part yards and maybe Family Vans.

Aren't they in L.A.? Someone?

Sorry to hear about the accident.

I think the link 86 Scotty put up is for the little grill hole in the lower bumper area (trans cooler?)- that may be why it's listed so cheap.

Oops, you're right. My fault. Here's the bigger, upper grill for about what I paid for mine:

Here's the black one, note the price difference:

Here's the difference, as I see it:

Re: 2000 E-250 Front bumper and grill needed

So do the billet grills need the stock grill behind it?

FamVans has a stock grill for 59.99, the insurance quote on the stock grill is almost $400
