There are others that know more about this but I looked into it and the answer is yes. You still have to paint them though (they come primered). It costs several thousands to do the swap...I've seen others that paint over stock bumper and it looks good as well, this would be much cheaper.

I agree...it's a lot cheaper to dechrome and paint your existing bumper.

But no, it's not just a plastic cover.

I've been looking into just getting the bumpers Color match rock guarded since the front bumper is one helluva gravel catch and bug basher. looks to be about a grand to get them both done

To do a sport bumper you have to replace the whole supporting structure behind the bumper and everything comes primered. LMC sells all the parts to do it. Just look for the sport bumper 2009+ page and order all the parts on that page

Check with these guys for the Sports bumper can order the complete bumper MP-1JS52TZZAA but must be painted to match.

I have a Cherry Red Sport 2011 and was trying to find the lower grill insert in the bumper precut for tow hooks for when I install them instead of cutting the current one.
