Ive got ~600 into it so far and only plan on spending abother 250ish. But alot of that is cuz I can do the work myself. This would be a couple thousand dollar swap if you had a shop do it Im sure

Can you give me more info on how the bumper fits ? I have a hood and grille from a 2500 sitting around , Cant seem to find any info on the bumper swap other than it isnt a easy bolt on ....I was thinking of reshaping the corners of a 1500 bumper pad to match the 2500 grill if i had to ... Any info would be a huge help ...

You have to modify the front frame horns to accept te 2500 bumper. It's pretty straight forward, just fab work required.

Ive got a hood/grill and the extra pieces that go under the headlights. I cant for the life of me find a bumper w/ fog lights for less than like $700 and i know they are out there for $200-300. Problem is a lot of the HD guys in SoCal dont put new bumpers and stuff on their trucks.

Well you can use your 1500 bumper for the swap . Just get a lower bumper off a outdoorsman with the fog holes and paint it white ....No need for a 2500 bumper , And it looks better imo . How do i know this ? A few years back in sema 2008 dodge made a truck called the Ram TRXtreme . It used a 2500 hood and grille with a 1500 bumper . They cut the corners of the grille on the bottom edge to mach the shape of the 1500 bumper . Heres a few links to show you . I cant find any head on shots after hours of digging but you get the idea ....

Thats what i am trying to do , Last i checked a oem lower outdoorsman bumper with fogs was 250 at the dealer ... And no need for the tiny part under the headlights .
