FDII style lower front bumper

Hi, guys,

Sorry for my english, I am chinese.

my compass is FDI, you know, we can not buy FDII outside US.

and this compass cost me more than $40000! also much expensive than US!


I want to replace my lower front bumper with the FDII style(two hooks), it looks much pretty than FDI style(without hooks)!

I checked mopar.com but I didn't get anything...

Where can I buy the FDII style lower front bumper?

the tow hooks are not part of the bumper, they actually attach to the subframe, so you have to buy the tow hooks seperatly:

the easiest thing is to cut a hole in your bumper to fit them.

Is your bumper the same as the european bumper or the US bumper?

that is a different bumper, so you'll have to find somebody who sells the parts. I would look for a junk yard that will sell to china............

After looking into shipping, which would be more than double the price of the bumper. I was in for an oil change a couple months ago, one of the guys stonefaced me and demanded I find a Vin for a fdii compass. I then went back to searching the Internet for better shipping costs to no avail. So I was in for.another oil change today and picked the brain of the guy behind the parts counter. (different guy)And after much speculation on which part code would give me the tow hook ports,we found that all 101 options all rooted to just 2 individual source numbers, we then cross referenced my Vin with the codes for the bumper, using the process of elimination we came up with a part number. There was one in T.O. The bumper came to 158. Not a bad deal considering the interweb required 250 on the low end not incl duty taxes

Swapped!

Did the swap on the weekend everything went great except there were 6 rivets (3 on each side) holding the lower fascia to the top grill that had to be cut out with snips. i just replaced with stainless bolt/nut combo. looking for a used tow hook option now
