What is the black grill support/ Hood opener called?


Asked by Aug 24, 2014 at 01:16 PM about the 2003 Dodge Ram 1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

About a month back I hit a deer and after getting the damaged appraised, I came to the
conclusion that fixing it myself will be cheaper than sending it in for repairs. But I cant find
the name of this particular part anywhere and im curious if you can even buy it online.

Are you referring to the metal piece that the radiator is bolted too? If so it is called the front core support.
