Default TRX4 Question

So I got my 09 ram TRX4 about a month and a half ago and love it, but as I got looking for mods and such online, I see that all the TRX4's I see have the steel bumper with the hooks. Mine has the plastic bumper with the fogs in it..love the look but hate that it's already got a big crack in the bottom "Grill". Is my truck actually the TRX4, or did someone just throw the sticker on to raise value?

Pictures would help.
A TRX-4 should have 17inch wheels, skid plate, 2tone paint with the lower portion in Mineral Gray.

Sounds like you have possibly a Sport model with the sticker thrown on it.

Sounds like I got the sport and ripped off $1000 by the used dealer saying it was more due to the TRX4... Mine has the 20" rims and no skid plates I can see..

Thats a good looking sport, I just picked up a blue sport myself. From what I noticed from between the Sport and the TRX4 is that the sport is more luxurious, has leather, sliding back window (I've seen some TRX4 with out it) dual exhaust, and the center console. The TRX4 has the everything that pitcher3853 mentioned. From what I've read the TRX4 sits a 1" higher as well.

This is stuff you can add to your Sport though. Tow hooks you can add on and I would imagine you also get the skid plates too. This is what I am going to do to mine. I think the Sport model is more expensive then the TRX4 as well. Before I pulled the trigger I was going back and forth for a month on with truck to buy.

Yep, its a sport for sure. If you want the tow hooks and skidplates, there are a few threads on here on adding them to a sport model.

Nice looking truck, mine is similar.

I like the idea of tow hooks and the plates, but would almost rather save up for a more rugged bumper. Would almost be scared to use them with the plastic bumper.
