tough truck, but need bumpers
 
Got rear ended today by an infiniti q45 and was pushed into the car in front of me. It's a 2011 ram 1500 st quad cab with plain painted bumpers. I want to upgrade to chrome bumpers. Will only 2010 and 2011 bumpers work? Are the bumpers different for quad or crew cabs? I assume that the chrome bumper with fog lights bolts up same as without fog lights.

Here's some pics of the truck and the car that hit me. Relatively little damage to the truck compared to the car.

Yeah. The hook on the bottom of the hitch snagged the transmission line from the infiniti. :hah:

Ouch, sorry to see that! Sure looks like your Ram took it like a champ, though. Can't say the same for the Infiniti.

The bumpers for a quad or crewcab are not different except for the fact most of them are chrome vs. painted.

I don't think you'll need anything except for some new brackets and bolts with the bumpers.

And I do love what that hitch did...LOL

I went with chrome bumpers. I also changed the grill to chrome and changed the wheels to aluminum.

Nice!

Get a bumper sticker made: "Hit me, and I will tow you where I want to go....."

Looks good, any thoughts on replacing the black upper bumper fascia to body color? I think that'd really finish it off nice :)

Have it color matched?
