Tons of people do SRT bumpers w/o lowering it. It also gives you more options for tires too.

thanks for all the feedback.
anyone have pictures? Frankie can you post one of yours w/o it.
only thing is i want to know if i could just put the front bumper cause i feel then i'd have to do the whole body kit including the back..?
I'm planning on running the 22inch gloss black srt reps in the spring

You can do whatever you want!

Some people have just the front, some have just the back, some have just the rims, etc!

Here is a pic of mine...

Re: anyone ever hear of installing srt8 bumper and not lowering their wk?

Do you lose your front tow hooks with the srt bumper? Also instead of the pips in the center on the rear would your factory hitch fit and look decent? are those rear lights functional or just reflectors?
