Default Bumper differences?

Hello! Ive got a 2005 PT Cruiser convertible touring edition (turbo lite).
I got hit from behind and now I have to replace the lift gate and the rear bumper cover. Mopar lists the 5093642AA bumper cover w/o turbo for my car. It also lists the 5086117AB bumper cover w/o turbo for the GT. I know the GT has a different front bumper than mine, the GT inter-cooler grill comes out whereas mine is one piece. I was wondering if anyone can confirm that the 03-05 GT rear bumper cover is different than the 03-05 touring edition or if they are the same. I do have the plastic step pad/guard so is that the only difference or is the bumper different on the GTs too? Thanks!

Don't think there's the slightest difference to the *bumper* across all models for a given year.
The underskirts (the part the bumper mounts in front of and that forms the lower rear of the rear wheel arches)) may differ for exhaust cut out - but not even sure thats the case.

Best bet, google some pictures for yourself. Sounds like the parts bod is just reading a book...

ima go ahead and say the only difference from 01 to 05 rear bumper is that one is all painted where as the cheaper model have the black plastic center section.. other wise they mount all the same and physically are the same bumper..

Did somebody asked about PT bumpers? Let's get her done!

Here's a Dream Cruiser bumper comparison I did several years ago. Also, there are many parts number for these bumpers. The cheapest turbo bumper I've found is from RockAuto.



And here's a comparison of a typical NA bumper and the turbo bumper. There's also an NA bumper with a separate chrome accent lower grill insert.




Here's the oddball 1st Gen Bumper with chrome accents:




And here's all 2nd Gen PT Bumpers from 2006 thru 2010:

According to this info from the '05 Parts Catalog, there is only 1 bumper cover for your PT, MOPAR 05093642AA:



The other one is for the turbo PT and the other two are for the export models.

But if you really want to know the correct one for your PT, call your local dealership and using the VIN, they will give you the correct part number for your PT.

Okay. Let's look at the rear bumpers on the 2005 PT's. The bottom is a 2005 Touring model and the top is my past 2005 GT. It appears the only difference in the rear bumper is the size of the cutout for the exhaust tip.

There's the textured non turbo first gen. The lower turbo radiator support is different to. Hangs down about two inches.

Rear bumper. 2 are listed. One is smooth and painted. One has the textured center that's has non painted center. All turbo front bumpers fit. The removable grille is part of the chrome package. Not all GTs have the two peace bumper.
