If you got the $$ look for an 99-01 Cobra bumper, those are sweet.

What do you mean how they work? You'd have to purchase the fogs+bezels+pigtails for it. All easily done on eBay or AM.

Have you tried buffing it out OP? I can't tell by the pic if they're any creases in the bumper.

I hit a recap on the highway not too long ago and it looked worse than it was. It buffed right out.

that kit is actually discontinued as Ford discontinued the OEM hood for 03/04 and that kit contained all OEM parts, hence the price.

The bumper that sell is not OEM it's a CAPA CERTIFIED or REGULAR INVENTORY.

With RockAuto you get the following..

Body parts come in different quality levels (not all of which are available for every application):

CAPA CERTIFIED parts bear the seal of the Certified Automotive Parts Association guaranteeing fit and quality equal to original equipment. These parts may be required if your insurance company is paying for the repair.
ECONOMY are less expensive and may be less durable and/or a less-exact match for original equipment than other lines. When replacing symmetrical parts (like taillights or mirrors), we recommend replacing both sides to ensure they match (small differences in gloss or color compared to original may be noticeable if you replace only one side).
OE NEW parts are supplied directly by the Original Equipment Manufacturer. These parts are the same as what the vehicle manufacturer installed on the assembly line.
PREMIUM LINE parts are more expensive because they come from brand-name, generally U.S. based manufacturers like Visteon.
RECONDITIONED parts are OE quality, have been reconditioned and are ready for preparation and paint. Primer color of parts may vary.
RECYCLED parts are from the Original Equipment Manufacturer, and arrive ready for preparation and paint. Color of recycled parts may vary. Parts may be "blemished" items rejected by a vehicle assembly plant for minor scratches or other imperfections, or parts left over at the end of a vehicle model year and sold as surplus. No additional preparation has been performed on recycled parts.
REGULAR INVENTORY parts come from companies like TYC Genera, DEPO (MaxZone), Kool-Vue, EagleEyes, and TYG. Sometimes our warehouse's inventory may include the same part with the same part number, from two or more manufacturers -- this is why we can't promise which brand part you'll receive. Regardless of manufacturer, these parts look and perform like original equipment -- they're all based on the same original-equipment designs.

Hope that helps.
