Hey all,

I had an incident with a deer over the weekend that has presented a new crossroads for myself.

I’m considering an off-road style bumper, but the truck is stock height.

Does anyone here have a picture of something aftermarket on a stock height truck?

Thanks

Here are some suggestions:

This is the one I’m upgrading to

Fab Fours DR19-X4252-1 Matrix Front Bumper with Pre-Runner Guard and Sensor Holes for Dodge Ram 1500 2019-2020

This is my current one. Definitely would protect from hitting a deer.

[email protected]…that does look nice. Front bumpers are hard to pick for me, because I do like the factory look. But if I were to go all in with an off-road rig, that would be my first choice. It has everything that you need built in to it.

That should be an advertisement!!!

Are you in a rebel or eco diesel?

Eco Diesel is an engine option, not a trim level. His truck is not a Rebel.
Yes, I know... I drive an Eco Deisel. The issue I am running into is the bumpers are always listed as not for rebel, TRX and most say they have issues with the Eco Deisels. While I understand the issue with the TRX, the problem seems to be the intercooler on the eco... so I am looking for folks who know which bumpers work on the trucks with the eco

I am in the 5.7 Hemi. The issue I would see is the intercooler on the ED being too low and being a contact point. Unless you added an aftermarket skid perhaps?
