08 Bumper Bracket
 
Does anyone know the part number of the 'bumper bracket' that's need for an 08+ front end conversion? Is it this air dam:

or is there another piece I'm missing. People refer to the needed piece as a bumper bracket but the link above clearly says air dam?? Also, any P/N for clips/rivets I need will also be helpful! :thumbsup:

  2. Front bumper bracket

And that's it? I'm guessing I can't reuse any of these items from my 05 JGC Limited? I'm converting to a 08+ front end non-srt.

Hello there. I am also working on the same conversion, hahaha. This must be the new thing now. I need those exact parts. Please let me know of any other screw, clip, or what ever you needed other than any original hardware. Thanks in advance. This is the first time for me as well. I have a 2007 JGC Loredo. The next leap of faith is painting...oh gosh.

Yeah. It's an awesome mod. I think the lines of the 08+ flow much better with the Jeep. Anyway, I haven't done it yet. I'm actually still waiting on a response from my last post. I just want to make sure I have anything and that there are no surprises. I'm also a cheap bastard so I'd like to find out if anything at all is reusable from my old jeep! lol :thumbsup:

There may be parts that may be reusable, but it may slow down the removal process. Meaning, being careful of removing the parts that can be reused without damage. I must admit, I am somewhat nervous. What I have purchased so far:

Bumper Cover - approx. $56
Grill - approx. $35
HID Headlights - approx. $91 each
Air dam - approx. $88

Still need:
front bumper bracket
air dam support
chrome insert
hardware

I suspect that part 55157476AD is for 2005 to 2010? There is a site in Texas that sells this part for $68 and advertise (05-10) years. This peace may be reused. I need some clarification i guess.

I hope you didnt buy the aftermarket hids, if so did they actually send you the right ones?

I bought the HIDs from (C---E----R----T---I----F----I----T). I can bring them back if they are not the correct type. I am certain that they will fit. But, I am ready for very minor modifications if need be.
