Dodge Repair/Bumper


I have just purchased dual exhaust for my dodge ram 1500 2005 5.7L. It won't work with my current bumper, and I've been looking all day for a bumper for my truck with no luck. I noticed they make that style of bumper for the 09 model and was curious if it would fit on my 05? If no any suggestions on where or what I can do besides taking a grinder to my current bumper.

Hi Taylor,
Have you checked at the Dodge dealer parts counter? It may be that their manual will give some dimensional data so you can determine whether the '09 will fit on your '05. It is also possible that you could remove your '05 bumper and compare it at the dealer part counter to an '09 which they might have in stock. Those would be my suggestions.
Please read the PS (below) and respond to it.
