Subject: Durango bumper cover same as dakota?
IP: Logged

Message:
Okay, I know that the bumpers are as a general rule the same. BUT, I see a lot of Durangos that appear to have a complete fiberglass bumper cover that actually sits on top of the bumper itself as opposed to the traditional hang-below valence.
1) am I correct about these durangos
2) if yes, can I put one on my dak?

Leave it to me to come up with the most obscure questions.

btw-I'm talkin '97 SLT CC

97-00 have the valance that bolts to the metal bumper '01 (might be '02) has the cover over smaller bumper... dakota or durango

My 1998 Dakota had a valance bolted to the bumper. My 2000 Durango has a valance bolted to the bumper. Now my Dakota has a 2002 bumper cover.

So does this mean that if I bought a bumper cover for a durango that fits over the bumper it would not fit over my 97 dakota's bumper?

If it won't then I'm probly gonna try painting my chrome bumper. Anyone ever tried painting a chrome bumper? If it's proffesionally prepped\painted will it still chip like crazy?
