so I am toying with the idea to add a brush guard to the front of my van and possibly a step bumper out back

Wanted to see what people have done and who makes them etc.
I may try building my own front one.

Thank you

There are after market items as you described.

They will be different for each generation of Econoline. (There were 4)

I had a third gen E 150 (and a very stock 2nd gen) that had a step bolted to the bumper. Then had a ladder up the right side and a roof rack on the top.

The bolt on step broke and I never could find the exact replacement. That step had a built in LED light and a license plate bracket. Mostly because the add on spare tire covered the stock rear license plate location.

I towed a very large boat. Adding a step bumper in the rear would have been an issue for me to be able to tow. And I think there are step bumpers out there.

What generation is my 1997 e 150 then?
Fourth and last generation.

The fourth generation was from model year 1992 to the end of production. Technically 2014. However in commercial applications, Ford is still building them. Van Chassis only.
