Can Westin HDX Grille Guard From 2012 Ram 1500 be Installed on 2017 Ram 2500


I have a HDX Grille Guard that came of my 2012 Ram 1500. I bought a 2017 Ram 2500 and would like to mount the HDX to the new truck. Which would be the mounting parts kit I would want in order to mount the Grille Guard to my new truck. Thank You.

We do have the replacement mounting hardware available for your Westin HDX Grille Guard # 57-3545 with part # 57-354PK, however it will not work to install your existing grille guard on your new 2017 Ram 2500. This is because both the grille guard and its mounting hardware are vehicle specific, and it looks like there is enough of a difference between the 2012 Ram 1500 and the 2017 Ram 2500 that a completely different HDX Grille Guard is needed.

Your current Westin HDX Grille Guard from your 2012 Ram 1500 will not fit your new 2017 Ram 2500 without modifications.

Because of this your best option is to go with a new grille guard that is confirmed to fit your new truck. I recommend the Westin HDX Grille Guard with Punch Plate - Black Powder Coated Steel # 57-3555 or the stainless steel version # 57-3550. The needed mounting hardware will be included.
