Has anyone tried installing an aftermarket bumper made for the 2021 GMC 1500 on their 2022 refresh or 2023 Chevy 1500? I’ve only seen one or two options that are built for the Chevy, but not exactly what I was wanting. There are many options for the GMC, and they have a similar bumper profile. Has anyone tried it?
 
I installed the RC Bumper on my '22. It's a nice fit and follows the grille lines into the front quarter panels like it should have came that way from the factory (IMO). Really nice kit too. Easy install and included all the LED cube lights and LED light bar. (check my profile pic for an image...for some reason I can't find the pic to upload here)

Thank you for the reply! That’s a very nice truck and bumper! The newer 2022 refresh trucks and the 2023 trucks have a different bumper profile however. That is the one I was hoping to get some insight on.

No, it's not possible. The refresh front end is totally different. It SHOULD be possible to collect all the parts for the 19-22 (pre-refresh) front end and swap it on to a 22.5+ refresh truck and then use the pre-refresh aftermarket bumper...but that's going to be a big project. Unfortunately, due to the design of the new front end, aftermarket options are going to be limited (and really ugly)...this is one of the many reasons I opted to buy a pre-refresh truck instead of a brand new one.

Yea looking myself for the refresh-bumper. Have you had any luck yet?

Thanks.

I know fab fours has one:


Fab Fours stuff is not for the faint of heart though - you gotta be serious cause it's big money and REALLY heavy. But if you need a winch because you use winches then this is the kind of thing you want. I've got a Warn Ascent that i'll be mounting on mine in a couple weeks (Warn owns Fab Fours so it's the same stuff) and it weighs 180lbs without hardware (and without winch).

The fab four’s one is the only one I have found so far. I really don’t like the way it looks though. I have contacted the company about a different bumper that they make, and they said they should be coming out with it for the post refresh trucks within the next few months.

I'm waiting on them to come out with one for my 2023. They said they were working on it but didn't have a release date.
 
So not sure if you guys are still looking, but American Trucks has a few bumper selections. This is the specific one I'm looking at. If anyone has found any others, please let me know. I'm probably going to pull the trigger next week.
