Dumb Question

Hey so I am curious if it is at all possible to replace the front bumper on a 2017 Black Edition ES Lancer with your typical Ralliart bumper. As I am not a particular fan of the new fronts on the lancers.

Thanks

That's hard to answer, itll all depend on if the Radiator support and front of the car is the same. I'd also check if the quarter panels are interchangeable with the older pre facelift style. As the lights may be a different shape too. But like I said, it will all depend on the mounting positions of everything - which IMO is pretty hard without both side by side. Might be worth contacting a mitsu specialist and ask if they know much about it. Or maybe somewhere like ClubCJ may have covered it. We're pretty low on CJ and newer members so the knowledge isn't so great

I believe it will as the CF is just a face lift and externally that is just about it. Any changes to fit the new style bumper would necessitate added production costs, If aftermarket can do it, surely Mitsubishi can!!!
Wiring to fog lamps on CJ might need slight sorting.

As suggested by Hugh-CE get onto ClubCJ. There is a heap of info there for you. May even find someone willing to swap CJ bumper for CF bumper and if both cars same colour save, heaps more.

What color is your car?

By the way, suggest you buy a RallyArt induction snorkel $175 new from Mitsu straight replacement. No warranty issues and unbelievable, well almost but definite benefit.
then add a bit more for further improved breathing as in picture of mine or alternatives on ClubCJ. Existing snorkel is restrictive. RA Snorkel for AusLancer.jpg

My Car colour is black no chrome accents it is the 2017 Lancer Black Edition. I don't believe I can get the CF bumper, due to the halogen driving lights. It would probably require some fabrication..
