Default Bumper Cover

Hello fellow Ram owners,
This is my 1st offical post. LOL. I have a 1997 Ram 1500 2wd, 5.2 engine. Last year i statred Hunting early and the truck got me a doe. It wiped out the entire front bumper. Well after some hot phone call's a visted to the insurance company about repairs the truck got set. It seems that they wanted a police report to prove that i hit a deer, seems the massive blood and hair isn't enough. It was drivable but wouldn't pass state inspections because of the bumper sticking out.

So found a bumper at the local "2nd life for cars shop" aka junk yard. The covers are ok but the clips that attach them to the steel bumper have some that are broken. I am looking to reattch these clips to the cover but not having good luck. Can someone tell me what brand glue to use if this will work? Or where can one find replacement clips? Or just how to reattach these clips?

I know i could buy a replacement covers but don't really wish to spend that kind of money when my covers are in good shape.

Thanks again.

Welcome to the Z.

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

We LOVE pics of Rams.

Here's how to post them:
"A veteran - whether active duty, retired, national guard, or reserve - is someone who, at one point in his or her life, wrote a blank check made payable to The 'United States of America', for an amount of 'up to and including my life.'"
