I haven't found any updated threads regarding conversion for the ST to the RS rear bumper. Has anyone yet done it and would like to share with the rest of us interested?

For a 2015+ ST, it should just be a matter of bolting the RS bumper up and obviously getting the exhaust modified. The RS exhaust will not bolt up to our cars as the exhausts follow different paths. Other than that, the body panels, hatch, and taillights are identical so the bumper/valance just bolt straight on.

RS exhaust doesn't fit because the RS doesn't have a spare tire and utilizes that space.

But yea, just get the RS bumper and bolt it on.

I'd imagine it would be the same with a 13 or 14 ST bumper going on a 15 or 16 ST? I have a 16 and like everything about it but I do like the earlier bumper more. The earlier one seems a little tidier, tucks in better, has less mass.
Not that I'm looking to get rear ended but if the chance ever came up I wouldn't mind changing it if it's feasible.

No, the 2015+ models have a different hatch, different taillights, and the sheetmetal in the rear is different. Significant modifications would be necessary for that kind of swap regardless of which way you're going.

Ah, interesting, thank you. I was going to park near a 13 or 14 to compare but now I see there's no need.
Appreciate it.

The 13/14 can run the Zetec S rear that Rebel Devil does. This allows for Dual exhaust to look normal.
The 15+ Can run the RS rear bumper

Otherwise Maxton and a couple other companies also sell some sort of options as well.
