Question New Member With Front Bumper Question

Hello Everyone,

I recently damaged my front bumper on my 2006 Ram SLT. It is the chrome bumper and I'm looking for the best place to purchse a new one. So far this is what I've found:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/DODGE...Q5fAccessories

Has anyone here ever dealt with these people or have a better reccomendation?

Also, if anyone has any other suggestions on what I can do, here's a pic:



The body shop told me that banging it out would make it look worse because of all the dimples it will leave.

What do you guys think?

Welcome to the Z. Thanks for the pic of your Ram. I don't have any suggestions on the bumper though.

We have a lot of forums for all kinds of topics, so you shouldn't have any problems finding a place to post questions.

Hello and welcome to the forum. You might check with LMC Truck out of Lexana, Kansas. 800-LMC-TRUCK or go to LMCTruck.com - I've bought a couple of things from them. Prompt shipping - good service - knowledgeable phone staff. Good luck. WW

Good idea! In this age of technology we tend to forget about the junkyard!

Welcome to the forum!

Sorry about the bumper. LMCTruck.com is a good suggestion. There are several authorized MOPAR parts sellers on eBay and they carry genuine MOPAR parts.

The one I've had the best luck with is airparkcjd. Great service and competitive pricing.

On the one you linked to I'm just wondering if it is a factory part or a knockoff. With the authorized sellers, you don't have to worry about that.

Welcome to the Z! I'd check out the yards as well, but bumpers will be hard to come by since it's the most common thing required by body shops. Another place to check before the dealership is LMCtrucks.com they will send you a catalogue and it's really easy to order the parts you need.
