I don't see why it wouldn't be doable how you said. You would need everything but the grill and it should attach right to that. Not sure if the fog lights are the same so there is a chance you may need those as well.

Re: Can i swap a summit bumper on a laredo

The Summit fascia (front and rear) is different than on the other trim levels and you will most likely not be able to swap out just part of it (bumper) without purchasing the rest of the assembly. Also note that it's not just those parts, but the fog lamps are different, etc. Could be big bucks...

Can i swap a summit bumper on a laredo

Entire bumper swap will require both front and rear plus lower frame facias as all that flows and lines up.

Re: Can i swap a summit bumper on a laredo

Don't forget the Summit shares fender flares with the SRT so a Summit bumper on a limited wouldn't work unless you swapped flares too. That would necessitate a front AND rear bumper swap for sure as it would look stupid to have different flares front and rear. You're looking at a lot of parts here but I think it could be done if you want it to be!

Shoot, I'd like to put an Overland front bumper on my Summit just so I could remove the lower part easily for trails, but with the fender flares (which I really like) that just doesn't make this swap feasible for me. In my opinion the front of the Summit is take it or leave it, but the rear looks much better on the Summit.

Re: Can i swap a summit bumper on a laredo

OP, the key here is that the Summit exterior (SRT, too) has unique contours that are different than the other trim levels; Laredo, Limited, Overland. So adopting one "part" required adopting all the rest for it to fit together and not look wonky.
