Default 03/04 cobra bumper vs cobra r bumper

Hey, ive been trying to decide between the 03/04 cobra bumper and the cobra R bumper for my '03 gt. Thought i had my mind made up on the 03/04 cobra style but not too sure. I know everyone will say its your car, do what you want, but i would like to hear what people would do if it were up to them. pictures would help, and ill post links to the 2 different bumpers. Mine is a black gt by the way, thanks.

Honestly, if you dont have a (real) heat exchanger or front mount intercooler, I'd go with a 99/01 cobra bumper. The 03/04 looks nice, but the gaping hole in the center doesnt rub me well unless its filled with something. Just my .02$ however

I'd go with the 03/04, personally I think the R style looks cheesey, and just looks out of place, unless you have some crazy after market body parts...

I've never been a fan of the cobra r bumper so I'd say go with the 03/04 or an 01

Remember that the R bumper has a very large impact on the airflow up front, and needs to be matched with a wing that can work with it.

xx10GT,

I honestly don't think you can go wrong. Either of these bumpers will look great on your Stang. My personal favorite is the 03/04 Cobra bumper. It looks great and I love the circle fog lights!

This is just my .02, let me know if you have any questions!

-Dan

I tend to agree with everyone else. If I had the choose I would go with the Cobra bumper be it 99/01 or the 03/04 model.
