Check this 2005 bumper bracket. Looks the same. I am confused.

I agree that the part looks the same. Also, the P/N's appear to be the same as well... I guess I could just order it anyway to be on the safe side. I'd hate to waste money though...

THAT is not the same as the 08+ bumper bracket. Look at it...it has holes for the plastic push pins like the 05-07 bumpers use. The 08+ bumpers dont use the push pins and just "snap" into the 08+ bracket

Re: 08 Bumper Bracket

I have some news. I went to the Dealer and looked at Both parts:

(2005-2007) - 55156878AE
(2008-2010) - 55157476AD

And, there are some significant changes. I just went ahead and bought the part from the dealer an hour ago. Did not want to wait for delivery from online places. Plus I am so ready to get this thing done. But, again....they are not the same. You are very correct. Get part 55157476AD.

Re: 08 Bumper Bracket

Ha ha....well. cheap. OEM is cheap also. Everything is cheap. You know that right. Of course you do. As far as fitting....well, I will let you see my pics when I get it installed this weekend. And as far as 300 dollars for OEM. Well, actual cost for the cover in my area is more like $450.00.....and that just don't make sense in today's economy. The $56 dollar cover is pretty good looking. Very clean and I was very impressed at the quality from Certifit. No flaw that I could tell. But again, I will find out this weekend. Thanks for looking out. I appreciate your honesty. I never did this upgrade, so I cannot argue. Time will tell.
