Found a Bull bar that worked with my 2001 Sport 1500
 
Hey guys, just thought I share this. I was in a market for a bull bar but sadly most of the stuff I saw on ebay and online Excludes 99-01 sport models. I finally decided to get this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/160669519512, it was affordable and free shipping so I figured I give it a shot.
Anyway, the package came today, It says "MAT" on the box, not sure if that's the manufacturer. The bull bar was in good shape and well packed. Now I was crossing my fingers the whole time because I figured I would need to trim the bottom of the bumper a bit to make this fit, but surprisingly I did'nt have to do any trimming/cutting. I lined up the brackets to the frame holes, and mounted it as high as I could. I decided to re-use some of the existing bolts (see pics). The kit came with mounting bolts and hardware, I did not need/ use the longer bolts as per the instruction. (The instructions are useless, but the diagram was a good guide). Hope someone will find this useful, esp owners of 99-01 Ram 1500 Sport models. Here are the pics:
(It was dark, by the time I finished the install)

Are these the ordinal brackets supplied with bullbar as the ones shown in your picture look different to the ones shown on the eBay sales site, they look flat? Thanks bovasyd

RamSport2001 11-02-2011 05:35 PM

Yes the brackets (in the pics) are the brackets that came with my bullbar. (see link to ebay seller) Other sellers sell diffferent bull bars with different mounts.

Thanks for your help, but that was a one of for that site so I will have to go back to the original plan and make my own brackets, they didn't ship to the UK, so just as well they didn't have another one eh

RamSport2001 11-03-2011 02:44 PM

Oh, man that sux. Did you try emailing/asking the seller if he has anymore in stock?
Anyway, Good Luck hope u find one for your Ram.

No, I think it's going to be easier to make one, no problem, thanks again
