Can I Swap A GT Bumper Onto a V6?

Hi, recently i bought dual exhaust for my v6 and i have called dozens and dozens of people to see if anyone could cut it for me, no one would do it. So, i've decided to just buy a GT bumper pre-painted (Given i can fit it). Is the v6 rear bumper bolt patterns the same? Will it bolt up correctly? Any help with this would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

Yup the rear bumpers are interchangeable. It's the front bumpers where there are some differences (can't use V6 grill in GT bumper & vice versa).

I cut mine for the dual exhaust. I found a template on line and cut it with a Dremmel Tool and a 1" cut off wheel. Very happy with how it turned out!

Cut it yourself really easy to do.

Do not cut your bumper. Bad idea unless you truly know what you are doing. One screw up and it will never look right. I just buckled down and bought a GT bumper.

If your suggesting he buy another bumper, why not try to cut it? It's not hard. Why pay for a bumper if you can use the one you have. If you screw it up, then buy one!

Yep the bumper goes on pretty easy.

I bought the GT bumper because I like the clean look.

I've found them on car-part.com I bought mine from LKQ-Keystone and had it painted. All said and done it was a little under $600
