Default Genuine Bumper or Not?

Hey I was looking up different places for 01 cobra bumpers and found this:
http://www.bumperwholesale.com/produ..._product=13767

Do you guys think this is oem? Or should I stay away from it?

It does say it is aftermarket. Also price to cheap. Oem runs somewhere near $500 dollars. I would go with oem for fit and finish. Nothing beats oem in my opinion. Maybe someone on here has ordered from this company and can tell you about fit and finish of this companies product.

I bought my OEM cobra bumper for under $400. Came with the fog lights and brackets as well as installation. Did I mention, it was already painted black?

I bought an aftermarket cobra bumper from a local body shop for $175. It fits just fine.

Call and ask about their return policy. If you order it, spend an hour installing it on your car before going in for paint and if fitment sucks then send it back. I like how they reference the actual Ford part number though, definitely sends you out on a loop for a second.

I got an aftermarket on mine fits 100%, the only thing that would scare me away is fiberglass.

I painted it got the nestle and chin spoiler.. Looks great. Just make sure the design is the same... Make sure it uses good material as well. Good luck man
