Question Another Grille Question

I have a 2015 Ram Sport Crew Cab, and I'm looking for a lower billet grille insert. However, nobody makes one. Any suggestions? Tia.

Depending what you are trying to do. You can always make your own. Hardware stores often carry expand aluminum of different designs. Maybe something made of brass and have it chromed or powder coated.

Yeah, I 'm leaning that way. I was just hoping that someone knew of a mfg that would have one available. For whatever reason, all of the mfg's make one for the Express, but not for the Sport. Go figure! Smh!

Do a side-by-side comparison with your Sport and an Express. The shape of the valance area looks similar, maybe the manufactured billet valance grills will work on your Sport?

I have, and they appear similar. When I looked up the part numbers on the Mopar website, I found 2 different numbers. Not only for the valance panel, but for the bumper cover as well. Go figure. Anywho, I have taken some pics of my valance cover and I plan on taking a few pics of one on an Express model in the next day or 2.

I also went up to Summit Racing yesterday and had them pull on for a 2012 Sport(the exact one I had on my personal 12 truck,prior to trading it in for this one). According to the specs it's supposed to be 47" long, when I placed it next to my own valance, it was much shorter. I went back home measured my valance(again) and it measure out to be 48" in length. Smh Somethin' isnt clean in the milk(so to speak). Ill post pics up in a bit. Stay tuned.

The bumper is completely different from the 09-12 trucks and the 2013-up trucks, so the insets from the 09-12 will not fit. And the Sport and Express models both share the exact same bumper. The insert is not very tall, so I think it would be tough to find an insert that matches the wide spacing of the grille inserts. I have never looked for these on the newer trucks, but I'll see if I can dig something up.
