We'll the second set of bumpers started to rust, took it to the dealer and they said they are not going to replace them. I had to take it to a different dealer than the one i bought it from this time. I am not very impressed had the truck since new (only 2 years) and rust problems since the beginning. I have a 40 year old car at home not a spot of rust.

My neighbor works at the dealer in the bump shop..The rusted bumper has been a problem on many of the Rams, Chrysler knows of the problem, they should replace it. If there is a problem, speak to the service manager. Don't take NO for the answer.

my bumper has been a problem for a while now. My problem is i was consistantly cleaning and treating it. So it never got bad (still barely noticeable) BUT its still there. First it began with the rust streaks from the top of the bumper. i made sure to wash it at least once a week and that was no longer a problem. THen i started to get the odd speck of rust where the fog lights would be if I had them. I brought it up to the stealership, they said there is a TSB on it....they took it in and did something....my guess would be wash it again....did nothing. After pressuring them, and some other issues with them I finally gave up with the dealer. My wife took it to another dealer and they ordered a new bumper for her. This happened this morning... The dealer makes the difference IMHO

I tried (with the first dealer) to get the painted bumpers......NO GO.

Default I had that

A few weeks ago I took my truck in for a oil change, and while there I pointed out that my painted front bumper was chipping and showing rust. They took some digital pictures and sent them of to corporate and after a week called me up and said they would fix it(known issue). It took them a day but they blasted it and repainted and sealed the bumper. It looks great but I will keep a eye on it.

Take it in and have it fixed.



Enjoy the Ride!
