Hey,

Can anyone tell me why there are different bumpers on different SXT's?

Mine has a notch cut out and some do not.

I'll Try to post a pic.

If it's the rear bumper with the cut-out the chrome tip, it should only be on the R/T. Maybe the bumper robot dozed off for a second. I had to extend mine down to clear the bumper. Just don't look right. Trade you?

Sounds like you have the R/T bumper. Post a picture.

If you had a side view, it might show if the tailpipe extends further back under the bumper, if so, installing a 3 1/2" stainless tip would be a lot easier.

Must have something to do with the build date. Just went down to dealer in town and the 2 SXT's have the cutout, but the 5 speed Solar Yellow SXT Sport doesn't.

maybe they had an issue of the exhaust overheating the bumper because of the distance between em; either way, the exhaust pipe as-is.. looks pretty wimpy.. lol

Our caliber is the SE model and the bumper is also cut out, makes it so much easier to put an exhaust tip on:)
