I've been thinking this for a while but I would assume flares and potentially bullbars from a 2500 would fit on a ram 1500 rebel, but i haven't wanted to be the first one to try it. The space under a rebels headlight matches a 2500 ram, and if you can find a "no cut" bullbar for a 2500 it would probably clear a rebels front skid plate, no?
Has anyone else thought the same? maybe this has been brought up before

I remember a thread that discussed how the Rebel grille is different shape from the 1500. Not sure about the 2500 though.

I think a lot of the body is the same. However, the frame will have differences. Not sure how those will equate to mounting points, etc.

Not sure about the bull bars. If the aftermarket part distributor is near you, take your Ram there for a test fitting or ask them if they think it'll fit the Rebel.

Just make sure they don't scratch anything while test fitting, some people aren't as mindful of that as others are. One reason why I often try to do it myself.

I think you may have to go custom if the aftermarket doesn't have anything or if the 2500 bull bar won't fit. Only found one rebel so far with it and it was a custom job.

Fortunately going custom shouldn't have to require much, has to be some out there that require little modification to fit properly, something that could eventually become a standard practice for some of us.
