I need to replace my rear bumper, because the face bar is rusted to pieces. What I'm trying to figure out is if I can get away with just ordering a face bar, or if I need to get the brackets. My inner brackets seem fine, but I can't figure out where/what the outer brackets even are, let alone what condition mine are in. I'm referring to part 10 on the picture below. #7 is the inner, and like I say, that's still solid and could be reused. If anybody has pictures, that would be even better.

My credo
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
If it’s like the older bumpers, piece #10 is an angled bracket that helps support the outer ends of the bumper. It should mount to the bumper and the inner bracket #7. You should see it if you look up inside the bumper.

It's a 2004, so I don't know if that's "older." If they were ever there, they are gone now, and didn't leave anything behind. No old hardware that I could see, no remaining scraps of rusted out anything. I guess I'll have to buy the one with brackets included, unless the craigslist bumper I just messaged somebody about comes through.
Thanks for the help.

I may have a pair of those that came off my 06... not positive though.

If you can't find them... I'll do a little digging.

Edit... I also moved this to the body forum.
