I have both a 95 and a 2000 Ram, and yes the bumpers are a little bit differnt, but either will bolt up. The change over was in 1998

go to www.rockauto.com
they carry everything for your truck,and they have factory bumpers
if you want an aftermarket bumper I am sure a google search will get you started in the right direction.

car-part.com is another web site you can check out. For those recyclers that list their parts, they usually show price and availability.

I have two OEM front bumpers I can't even give away. Most people want to upgrade to an aftermarket bumper any way.

thanks for the input guys! But I still don't know the difference. I want my 98 1500 sport to have the factory look. So I want to buy a new sport bumper if that is the case. can any one tell what the difference between the 2 bumpers were? How can I tell which one I have? Ma mopar is no help!LOL She can't seem to find the correct part number for the bumper.

well 98 was the change over years on the two trucks, so get a 1998-2001 Sport Bumper. I doubt you would be able to tell the difference between the two bumpers with out haveing them sitting side by side any way. on the chrome bumpers, the difference is the width of the plastic inserts, and the shape of the fog light cut outs. I am not sure on the sports bumper.. but like I said, 1998 was the change over year if any changes were made at all to the sports bumper.

Default the difference...

The change over in '98 was the first stock sport bumper was just painted the body color.. the next gen sport bumper was totally redesigned and had further spaced out fog lights (or sealed spots if not an option) and was more plastic with enforcements than the steel first one... hope this helps and in my opinion the second one looks much better but i cant vouch for its durability..
