97 RAM Sport Bumper Swap
Hey everyone, This is my first time using this forum, So being the new guy, i've got some questions. This is my 3rd ram, and i want to customize this one, I was wondering if i could swap the front bumper out for a 98 or newer Sport front bumper? If anyone has done this or knows if its even possible please let me know!

Yes, it's possible if you pick a sport bumper, fascia and hardware from a 2nd generation Ram Sport.

Check out's online'll see all the parts there that are needed to do the swap.

Yes it's possible. I made a pattern from the bolt holes on my '95 and transferred them to the mounting brackets on the '00 bumper mounts. Piece of cake.

You'll have to get a grill and frame off a newer one also otherwise you'll have a big gap between the bumper and grill because the older bumper is straight and the newer one has a dip in it.
