A stock chrome/plastic 97 bumper will fit 94 to 01 trucks. The support brackets behind the stock bumper and the sport bumper are different.

The 01 Ram Sport bumper, with the brackets that come with it, should also fit. I only find a listing for '99 to '01 sport front bumpers and brackets but maybe that's because they didn't make a '97 Ram Sport body colored front fascia.

Gonna do the foglights from the ram sport too?

Check out and their catalog for the Dodge pickups for some exploded view drawings of the stock and ram sport front bumpers. Illustrations start on page 11.

im trading one of my friends (that wrecked his truck) a bed off my parts truck and my bumper for his front sport bumper. fog lights are already in it.

Sweet. That will look good!

You may have to replace your headlight switch if you don't already have fogs on your truck. The foglight equipped second gen Ram used a combination headlight/foglight switch.

The whole kit (lights, harness, switch) is still available from Dodge for around $175

:smileup: Sounds like a great deal just fell in your lap. Awsome. Do you have the mounting brackets as well for the sport bumper? They are different.

DODGE4x4 01-12-2010 05:03 PM

they should be on the truck im gettin the bumper off of. he wont need them anymore.

in your other post I posted it too, the grills are different so if you keep the one you have now you will have a gap like my truck, they too also have a different mounting bracket. But with black probably won't notice it as much.
