Anyone confirm if the color matched bumper on a 2014 Limited is the same as the Sport lower bumper. They look the same, but want to be sure before I buy a lower bumper insert to replace the black filler piece. Want to match the upper grille.
How much and what is their contact information? web-site? Do they just make one style for the Ram or would they make a shorter one that would allow room to also install the tow hooks? Similar to what a GM Denali pickup would have.
Only saw two options from them on lower insert, all full length. I have no need for two hooks, but instead plan to use that location to mount Philips DRL LEDs by cutting into the existing black plastic insert, and behind the E&G Classics mesh insert.
Can confirm it's the same lower bumper. Here is the lower half of the EG Classics lower bumper insert, their chrome heavy mesh. As you can see it matches nicely the Limited upper bumper. I think it completes the front end look. I thought the original black insert at bottom was missing something. This insert covers over the lower insert. Have to drill 8 homes in that black insert. Then chime studs slide through, bolt from behind. The mesh is actually chrome metal not plastic. It is nicely made.
Then, I installed the new Philips LED DRL light guide. They are expensive at $200 amazon, but extremely well made, aluminum housing. I used a hot knife to create holes in the stock black insert so that DRL would sit flush from front. I bought cheap "L" brackets to wrap from behind the light to front, and grab the front of insert. Just enough room between light and new mesh insert. Gives clean look.
These lights come with auto dim lights, when headlight comes on they dim 50%. According to Philips they are legal because of this
The last pic is dimmed. The second to last pic is full bright.
I like the extra chrome. I'm going for classy white and chrome look overall (side door chrome strips are nice along with running boards). The allow tr various black pieces to provide light contrast. I really love the retrax pro glossy black to contrast as well.
Auto Accessory Warehouse had best price at 149,95. Part num 1117-010L-13H. You have to call or email to custom order. This is normally sold in a set with upper grille at something like $400 - 440. If you have Limited trim no need for upper as it is similar to EG Classics.
This week I was trying to find this bumper insert/grill and had no luck no matter where I called. Auto Accessory Warehouse is closed for business and no other retailer/e-tailer will sell only the lower part.
However, with extensive digging I found Overkill Fabrication and I really like the look/quality of their products since they are CNC steel made in the USA. They are competitively price compared to the E&G classics aluminum one and have a few options.
I think this is a newer product on their website, as the links and product page for these specific grilles are quite messed up, so I would recommend contacting them directly by email or FB messenger.
For polished stainless steel it ran me $325 shipped. A hair pricey, but it should be really good quality.
