Out With The OLD..In With The New...Bumper That Is. PICS INSIDE>>>
 
so as some of you may know i Effed my front bumper while i was out wheeling last week. for those of you who dont, story goes a little something like this. I was going down a trail and here came a lil hill, when going up the hill im staring at the sky so i cant see the trail anymore.....when i come down the other side of the hill i notice that the trail breaks hard right.....too late....CRUNCH....i hit a effing tree stump with my front bumper..vicinity of the driver side fog light.

SO... i just ordered a new bumper....cheap-o off of ebay. i have a buddy thats going to paint it for 100$$.... but i dont know if i need any additional brackets or what not to mount this thing, looks like its just the plastic cover.

Anyone know if i need any additional things to make this complete. here is the link to the ebay page.... http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/06-09...item230c28bbcd

I'm sure if you contacted the seller they should be able to answer all your questions.

Looks like the Sport style bumper, you may need different bumper support brackets.

I agree with Daniel ^^^^. It does look like the sport bumper.

ive always been curious about those. is it ALL plastic and just go over your existing bumper and upper valance? or is it actually metal and the valance is molded into it then all primed? because if i dont find a new truck with the sport style bumper i wanted to buy one of these also but had no idea how they actually went on

I'm pretty sure it's a completely different bumper. My dad has it on his truck, and it looks like it has different brackets from the normal one. I'm not for sure, but that's how it seems to me.

It looks like a solid piece of plastic with a chrome overlay piece for that middle bar.

thats what i thought, so essentially its a bumper cover and not a bumper. but they do look way better IMO (i like the laramie ones like that ^^^)

Thats the bumper I am looking at for my truck too, not sure if I want color all the way or the chrome. We will see if I find one or not

It is a touch different. I am not sure if the brackets are the same or not. The look is definitely different though.

ive talked to a guy who did this a few days ago, yes, what i bought was just the cover, but how it goes on is pretty simple, remove the top plastic part of the slt or regular bumper, remove the fog light holes, and it slides over the chrome metal bumper that you have on the truck already.
