    Okay, so this is a random question, but I just found out that they sold the 2nd gen Explorers in England (it's kind of funny to see them with right-hand drive), and upon looking it up I noticed across the pond they got a different rear bumper than we do here in the States.
    See an image here: https://d1ix0byejyn2u7.cloudfront.n.../images/used/big/fordexplorer2_749_500_70.jpg

    It looks like they have lights or at least reflectors in the bumper, which is kind of neat. I'm just wondering if anyone has ever seen one of these bad boys here in the US, or if they ever sold it here...

    Looks like a 1997 Mountaineer rear bumper to me.

    It does look like a 1997 Mountaineer bumper, but in chrome...

    Overseas their DOT's have regulations for things like a dedicated rear fog light (like an extra bright single tail light) and also a single dim rear light for parking at night on their narrow streets. I assume that's why that bumper has lights in it and yes it looks a lot like the '97 Monty rear bumper.
