Chevy Silverado 2014 rear bumper on a 2013

Chevy Silverado 2014 rear bumper on a 2013

Postby woofie2 [OP] » Dec 18 2013, 12:32am

I have a 2013 Silverado 1500.
would like to upgrade to the new step bumper from a 2014, did not know if anyone knew if they were a direct bolt swap.

(yes I have rear backup sensors to transplant)

Highly doubt it as the box is different size is wider as in width over the whole body and then inside the box as well. Then the 2013's along with the support frame for them would be different to.Im sure it could be fabed but its not a "direct bolt on" I really don't see why some people are excited about them. To me all this is to me is a spot where sand is going to collect and totally destroy paint or have a chance to allow rust....

exactly, I can have 400+ channels and still only watch 4-5 of them at any given month.

I have not started measuring but I knew the 2014 crewcabs were built on the same line as the 2013's so I was not sure if they were physically that much different.
I guess I will craw under one with a tape measure next time I am sitting at the stealership waiting on an oilchange.

Forgot to mention during my rant that I too like the step bumper feature on the '14 models. After 43 years, getting up into my pickup box especially when wearing heavy Carhartt clothing and boots is not as easy as it used to be. I am still not ready for a step ladder but time has taught me why the older guys need them.

woofie2 not sure if you have seen this aftermarket bumper option:

Unfortunately, it does not offer the step option but it looks heavy duty and for the look I am going for is on my list.

I just step in the lower area where the license plate is. Its about the same height as the new step on the corners? And there is more room for my foot in the middle?

Good luck getting one to fit, I also don't see the need but am a firm believer in do what YOU want.

yeah, I was lookng at the steps on the side to make it easier into the bed of the truck with the tailgate open.

The frames are very similar between the two generations, same with the spare tire and hitch placement. The bedside width would be the sticking point.
