Well in my opinion, the best bumper you can get for a 99-04 Mustang, is the Terminator front bumper no doubt. Actually, everything on the Terminator is just perfect lol

It's like $600 without paint. So probly not the cobra one. Maybe just the chin spoiler from am. All these other bumpers look ricy

It looks good with your hood but with the stock hood on mine, I don't think it will flow well

I like all of those a lot. The other ones that aren't ford, roush or saleen are kinda ugly

Terminator. Can't go wrong with that one. Classic, aggressive, and looks factory.

Re: good looking front bumper?

its VERY easy to have a new bumper put on... I took my front bumper off in about 20 minutes on my own. You just need a friend to help slide it off to keep from scratching the car up.

I would look into many of the options above and see what fits your style... but make SURE you take into account the flow the front bumper has with the sideskits... the roush Stage 3 for example sits lower so if you look at it from the side it looks odd as the side skirts sit up much higher.

The 99/01 cobra front is always a clean look and I didnt see it posted.

You will need a few extra parts other than just bumper

1. fog light bezels
2. fog lights
3. fog light harness and all that crap
4. running pony
5. grill delete insert stuff
6. chin spoiler (for 03/04 front doesnt come with one have to buy sep and it can be costly)

all depending on which bumper you go with of course
