Bumper Question

I bought a complete 07 bumper take off w/ all brackets. I thought this would be a direct bolt on an 02 but the body shop that is doing the painting says I will have to fab special bumper brackets. Is this true or will it bolt directly up.
Thanks, Kris

The 05 bumper I have looks like it is direct bolt on. Same measurements on the mounting as my 99. There are 2 bolts on each side with a plate with 2 screw mounts for the back side. Real simple.

i am pretty sure it is a direct bolt on, as many companies offer the same bumper for years 99-07. Go down to the shop and have them show you it will not fit.

Anyone do an 08 rear bumper swap on a 99-07? - TheDieselStop.com - Diesel Forums

No brackets for me either. Thats a simple swap. I agree with sirnunya, have them show you, get some pics if you need to, post 'em here, we'll get them straight

i just did it, it went on fine. but there were to side brakets that i didnt use, because they wouldnt fit anywhere, but you dont need them because the 4 front bolts line up
