Default Aftermarket rear bumper

I currently have an aftermarket bumper on my 95 ram. I bought the truck with this bumper on it. My wife was following me the other night and called me to tell me that she could't see anything due to the glare of her headlights off of my bumper. She said it was horrible. Does anyone know if a cop could pull me over if he found this to be a nuisance. Also does anyone know of brands for aftermarket bumpers?

Not sure about that man! I'm sure there are plenty out there. You could probably paint it if it's chrome and keep it!

I want to keep it the way it is. I'm just not sure what kind of issues may arise with it. But painting it was definitely an option also.

if the cop wanted to be a real dick about it he actually could give you a ticket for it because it is after market and not stock but you shouldnt have a problem just be nice to them lol

He could give you a ticket if he can prove its aftermarket, if it was on the truck when you bought it you can play the IDK card. Chances are you will never get pulled over for it, and you might want to check the angle of you wifes car, if its a car and nitting the back bumper he light might be angled too high. Also safe following distance is 3-4 car lengths, if shes getting blinded by a reflection she might be too close lol.
