Hit a Raccoon...possible to replace the bumper?

So today I hit a raccoon, unfortunately the little guy passed away but left nasty dents and cracks in the bumper. Was curious if it is possible to get a new bumper at all? Or if it even possible to replace it. Not sure if there are any aftermarket bumpers out there. Only because I would need to replace the whole thing. Not sure if those 3D Carbon or Zetec S body kits replace the whole bumper...would love to hear from anyone who has any sort of body kit installed.

Thanks everyone!

You would need a complete bumper cover, the 3D carbon or Zetec S kits only replace pieces of the existing bumper cover.

Ebay, your Ford Dealer, kijiji, etc, anywhere they sell wrecked cars or parts from them online or locally.

I don't know enough about your local market to tell you the best place to find it.




For example this part is available on Ebay.

Thank you for the input. Would love to replace it with the ST bumper, but the market here in Canada is brutal. Nothing on ebay really ships up here. Probably just easier to drive over the border and get one.

Try some local junk yards or better yet upgrade to the ST front bumper

Your insurance should cover it, minus your deductible, of course...
