Can you use F-Series bumpers on E-Series vans?

I need new bumpers for my van, but I'm not paying more for Aluminess-style stuff than I paid for my 2WD van. (Besides, while I'm trying to make the van look tough, I'm also trying hard not to look like a 4x4 poseur. It's a rough balance!)

I find lots of bumpers on Craigslist from F-series trucks, but rarely from the vans. Does anyone know if the mount points are the same? I googled around a bit but couldn't find a clear answer.

Re: Can you use F-Series bumpers on E-Series vans?

This may not be much help, but the mounts on a '94 Bronco and a '96 van were the same. The difference was in the location of the front wheel well. I had to trim the end of the bumper when putting the Bronco bumper on the van.
If you (or anyone else) is interested in stock, chrome, front and rear bumpers off an '07 van I have a set. Ya just gotta come and get them. Also have a chrome front Warn bumper off of my '96 van. Also free for the picking up. Located about an hour northwest of Reno, NV.

Call your local salvage yard. They have software that tells them what parts are interchangeable.

Good call. The salvage guy I called said the front bumpers are interchangeable, but the rears are not.

The Trailready bumper on my van is for a F series. SMB cut the bumper in two spots to clear the front spring mounts.

Scatter - I don't suppose you have two rear doors for a gray 2005 van sitting around, do you?

Sorry Phil - Hey, maybe you can pick up my bumpers and stack 'em up on the rear
of your rig so you've got something less expensive to hit in your moments of dorkness....

Re: Can you use F-Series bumpers on E-Series vans?

Hey Scatter, I'm a sensitive guy. That hurts (even if it is accurate).

Maybe the Forum members should all chip in and buy a parts van to cannibalize! I call dibs on the rear doors! ... and may I recommend a gray van?

Ok, I'm done hi-jacking this thread now.

Scatter, I am interested in your chrome bumpers. Can you tell me if they came with the plastic facia installed? Or are they all chrome with no facia mounting holes in them?

They're sitting out under a couple of feet of snow, so this is from memory, but the front does have the plastic facia and I don't remember the rear having one. Whatever was on the '07s. Got a broken foot what doesn't work well in the snow, so maybe someone else with that year can chip in with what they came with.
