I'm just wanting to pass on some info that it might not just be bolt on to the truck and there might be gaps like with any fiberglass bumper.
    A lot of people like the Cervini Sniper bumper. To me though it looks like a warped version of the origianal bumper. I am going to see what they say.

    I do want to thank you though. People have been modding their stock grilles and its not as bulky as the Cervini Grille. i want to do the same thing.

    Looks like the same thing as the Danko grill for a magnum-


    I love the look, but I can't pull it off with my pearl white car.

    Glad I was able to provide you with some info. I love your project, but man is it way over my head. I've only put together 1 computer in my life and it happens to be my car pc. Lol. Its functional right now on my test bench (old *** card table).

    CarPC coming soon. Hopefully end of 2010.

    What kind of car do you drive? It makes the car look like a monster, like it needs all that air for a beast of an engine.

    If you saw it in person, its actually easier then you think. I think the wiring is the hardest part. Hey mine is incomplete on my test bench, at least you have one kinda running.

    wow, that sucks.. but your going about it the right way-- take this as a chance to change stuff you wanted to anyways. it might not be in the order you wanted to do it in, but apparently, your truck wanted a new look...

    is insurance the reason that you have to be at or below the oem part price?
    if so, see if you can work out a deal with the insurance company for them to pay up to the cost of the oe part, and you cover everything over that..

    i have heard of it being done before, and i considered doing it when my car got t-boned, and i got projectors... i ended up not doing it only because i wanted the oe parts so i could take the projectors apart for little projects and still have headlights during that time..

    that leads into another idea--while you need to replace the headlights, why not do projectors-- either get some prebuilt headlights, or do a projector retrofit--(www.hidplanet.com) after getting projectors for my car, i don't think i will ever be able to go back to owning a car with standard reflectors...


    for the bumper, if possible, try to get a urethane bumper..

    fiberglass might last longer in florida, but around chicago, i don't think i have seen any on daily drivers without chips, cracks, and missing chunks...

    urethane will at least flex, so it won't chip and crack..

    The projectors that they make for the Durango are butt ugly. I mean they look really bad. I like the ones i linked to because they look like the stock headlights, but in a one piece build. The original has the headlights broken into pieces which looks so out dated. Basically I want a modern take on the original.

    The only urethane bumper is the SP 360 bumper kit. For some reason that kit doesnt do it for me, I have no idea why. Now why do they chip? Is it because they are low to the ground?

    I hate to be sexest, but woman cant drive for nothing. The younger they are, the worst they drive. I mean when this lady hit me, she didnt even hit her brakes, she used my car as the brake. Only thing I can say is that I was thankful it was a SUV. Because my car was higher, she literally went under me, thats why the damage is more to the bottom.

    I just really hope the insurance approves the claim. The estimate for the repairs comes out to about $4,700.

    I've always had a thing for station wagons and this one is the most bad *** one I've seen besides really really really old station wagons. Plus it fits my 6'8" frame, my wife's 5'11" and our 2 kids comfortably.

    i understand the look--i am in the same boat for my car, most of the kits are too ricer for me..

    i think that most fiberglass bumpers crack due to the natural flexing of the car, and the things that you bump into..

    fiberglass is way more sensitive to movement and impacts then other materials like plastic because it is so stiff, and fragile-- so even a loose shopping cart in a parking lot could mess it up...

    most of the cars around chicago that people have gone through the effort to replace the front clip will usually lower the car as well, so that, combined with the monster potholes we have equals disaster..

    fiberglass bumpers are indeed *****.
    i have one on the rear and the first day i had it i touched the ground when i went over a speedbump and offcourse the hangup parts broken.
    big hole in it and some cracks.

    i bought my front bumper from rieger (brand) thats made of ABS
    can get some bumps without problems that it will crack immediatly.
    i am also going to remove my bumpers and place the original back but i am going to weld them with plastic ( melting the same plastic) and make them how i like them
    then use a special filler thats a bit flexibel to make it nice and smooth

    much stronger then fiberglass

    maybe an idea
