Default Rusty bumper = new one, but..

Went into my dealer showed them the front bumper and how its rusting and they said they will take care of it. They 'ordered parts' is what the sheet they gave me said as I was also there for an oil change and such.

two weeks later (TODAY) they said my new BUMPER and BOLTS are waiting for me. I said ' whaaaa!'

Now here is my issue!!

A month ago I bought a used bumper with the fog light cut outs to replace this SLT bumper. only issue is the bumper has a few deep scratches in the crome. I was going to color match it because of it. But if DODGE told me they were ordering me a new front bumper I would have asked for the fog light bumper instedand pay the difference! Would have saved me from the money of having to paint match the front and back crome bumper!

I highly doubt that they will take it back since it took about 2 weeks to get here. :\

speaking of 09's and rust, i was adding air to my right rear tire and look up and what do i see ??????? the lip of the wheel well rusting from the inner edge. good enough to the point the paint is discolored and bubbling up.i tried to download some pics but it appears photobucket is working about as well as dodges paint process.

dont get me wrong i love my hemi but this is getting a little rediculous.

They will order only the bumper that came with the truck unless you had it changed by them with a mopar one. When my Chrome clad wheels rusted I asked if they could give me the cheaper painted alloy rims they said they have to put what was there on the build sheet unless as I said replaced at the dealer or purchased thru Mopar.

Aren't the chrome clad wheels chrome plastic over alloy wheels? How did they rust?

And where in Ontario are you Rick?

this is a little off topic, but how much did u pay for the bumper with the cutouts? i have a mint chrome bumper here with the foglight cutouts, as well as the rear with the exhaust cut outs and im having a hard time selling them (i upgraded to sport bumpers)... maybe im asking to much lol

The lip on those wheel is not really chrome, its just alloy, and it holds the plastic cover in place. I think that is where everyone is seeing the rust, not actually on the plastic dipped part.
