Technically the bumper cover is the plastic piece that everyone sees and swthces out if they have the LS/LT versions, the actual bumper is the piece of steel under the bumper cover.

All depends on how the site lists the product. SOme people and sites use the terms interchangeably.

that second one is like the LT bumper and you buy big inserts for those slots on the side, if you want the ss bumper with the molded fog lights then you want the first one

huh.... i didnt notice that, i assumed the picture was cropped but it shows the headlight section in the middle, but it says the pic isnt exact so give them a call and check on it, i dont know of anyone that sells bumpers that are direct oem replacements that wouldnt have that bar across the grill
