Default Switching from SLT bumpers to Sport bumpers

I'll be switching to paint matched bumpers soon and I have a question about the front end. More than likely I'll be buying primed sport bumpers and will have them painted. Unless of course, someone can find me Inferno red bumpers. It would be greatly appreciated! My question is, will I need any additional brackets or anything to switch from the 2 piece slt bumper, to the one piece sport? Or do I just pull of the chrome bottom piece and painted top, and slap the sport one on? Any help is appreciated.

Logically speaking I dont think its very cost effective to produce 2 different brackets, but then again i could be wrong. Ill do some research. they way I check this stuff is to look on mopar online parts and look up the front bumper assembly and see if there are different part numbers for slt and sport, if so then they are different if not then they are the same

Check out Jimsautoparts.com. The SLT and sport front bumpers are very different.
