Part Number Request: Front Bumper

Post by nerox » Tue Sep 20, 2011 3:57 pm

I've been looking around for a new front bumper coz mine is a bit trashed.

I've found a Brand New Chrysler bumper with the p/n 5014557AE

is this right for a 2001 R/T ?

5018992AA R/T Model [MLW,MLZ] EUROPE

Would be the correct one for yours. It is also $173 (list price) less than the one you posted. :)

any idea what the difference is between the 2?

they look the same to me ?!

EDIT: I see the difference, the normal bumper tapers in at the bottom whereas the R/T bumper seems to stay flush.

Chrysler UK wanted £300 ($495) for the R/T bumper

i got this one for £50 ($85)

5014557AE should have the repeater (side marker) holes for the US models. You will either have to fill them, or get side markers.

:-k

I wonder if someone ordered it and never picked it up, or it got ordered incorrectly, and they were just clearing it off of their inventory. Or possibly it is mislabeled. Either way, you got a steal.

Also looks like it's NOT an R/T bumper is it? I don't see the lip on the bottom...

They basically misrepresented the item via the part number tho.

But just what bumper is it exactly? An '00 bumper possibly? The R/T Europe bumper is the only option in the parts for 2001.

2000 parts shows this:

5014557AC [MLW] - Wide License Pocket EUROPE

But:
Part number 5014557AC was superseded by part number 5014557AE.
So it may just be an early fascia that they changed the design for improved sales, and the last digit on the PN.
