Looking for a front bumper

Ok, I've got a '92 F150, 2wd, etc, etc. I've seen some other F-series trucks that have a different front bumper and I really like the looks of it compared to mine. I've only seen them on 4x4's and I'm wondering- Did 4x4's use a different style of bumper? What I'm looking for is the front bumper with the two holes down low near the center, like for added cooling or such. Mine is the plain, original style with the black moulding. I'm trying to find the other one only because I drive alot at night towing my boat and it would be nice to get a set of really good driving lights and mount them inside those holes. Those stock Ford headlights just don't cut it on 2-lane highways @ 65-70 mph towing a ProV!

Anyone know what the heck I'm talking about, and if so, where I can find one? I'm willing to drive almost anywhere (I'm all over the state w/the boat anyway), and I'll even swap mine for yours if you have a good clean one and want mine (from Arizona).

Oh, please don't tell me try scrap yards. "Been there, done that" many, many times!

Thanks!

Jim

If this truck has a tailgate that is in one piece, I'm looking for one. I got my truck without a tailgate, so anything is better than what I have now.

My description is slightly incorrect, as the bumper I am looking for has three square holes in the front, right above the license plate, all surrounded by a black rubber moulding. I haven't made it Ford yet to check on the part number given by Mitch (above), but here's a link to someone's Gallery here that shows what I'm looking for:

My bumper looks exactly like this one except for the holes. If, and when, you get your '91 and it happens to have this bumper could you please give me a shout, either here, by PM, or email, please?

Thanks.

Sorry guys ive been busy moving my stuff to Wisconsin I bought another hobby farm there,, I still have that truck up here in north Branch.

I looked closer at the springs & one side has a piece of sprin missing, the other side is good. surprisingly the truck sits nice anyways.

The front bumper is junk.

The tailgate works but its rusty on the bottom pretty bad so im not sure if its for you.

Im not sure about the heads , i ran the engine for about 5 minutes & it had lots of blow by.

the blue seats arnt bad & other parts..

That bumper you linked to is one they put on diesel trucks for extra airflow. Hope that helps. I don't have any.
