Default Anyone know a good source for truck step bumpers?

I need to put a new rear bumper on my Excursion. I've found plenty of front bumpers, but the rears are tougher to find. Does anyone know of an online supplier where I can buy one?

jamesbfishin, I've been thinking of selling it... Yes it's a diesel (7.3) limited. It's in excellent shape (except for a dent in the rear bumper). I'll even take the steiger on trade. Do you really have a bumper that would fit?

tinmarine, thanks for the lead!

No, actually I don't have a bumper to fit your truck, sorry. 7.3 diesel, ok now I'm interested. What year, int and ext color, mileage? Can't trade the boat for it though, would you take a 97 F-350 Crew for it? White with grey int, 7.3 4x4

Interesting... I was looking to swap it for a crew cab pu. Mine's a 2001 with 90,000 miles. It's two tone red and tan with tan leather interior. Fully loaded limited edition. Great shape. I've never towed with it, mostly short trips around town and family road trips between VA and OH. I did have to put a transmission in it this past spring. I had the local ford dealer do it and it has a 3yr warrantee. Other than that (and the dented bumper), it's flawless. Heated seats, reverse sensors, 6-disk cd in-dash, power everything. I found a link to some pictures of a similar truck online, this isn't mine, but it's a similar year and the same color.

Give me some more info about yours.

97' 4x4 offroad 7.3 diesel, white, grey cloth int. Crew cab, long bed, alpine cd player, JL speakers and subs, Rockford amp. Rhino liner. New tranny at 75g miles done by dealer under warranty, Super Chips tuner, 4" Exhaust, 4" lift 35" BFG mud-terrains and unfortunately 158000 miles. Burns no oil, starts right up everytime, runs great, transmission seems to hunt for gears at around 37 mph always did since mile 12. Having a real hard time deciding if I want a new one just like it or replace it with an Excursion, or a 4x4 E350 diesel van, or just keep running it.

It sounds like the truck of my dreams. Unfortunately, the excursion is mainly for my wife to drive and if I replace it with a crew cab p/u, she would drive that as well. She wouldn't appreciate the 4"lift, exhaust and chip the way I would. I don't think I could talk her into it.

It's still the truck of my dreams too, the love affair with my rig isn't over yet, but I would consider a diesel Excursion with lower mileage as a replacement, or maybe one of these.
