KOR Rad Support Bumper Trim

Just wondering how everyone fastened the bottom of the bumper cover to the body? I decided to trim all of the lower section (not finished yet) but it seems quit flimsey with out any fasteners on the bottom.

Any got suggestions or pics?

Before BB and Rad support



After

I just trimmed the bejeezers out of mine. No sag there

It was pretty flimsy before I did it. I suppose you could possibly secure it to the air dam that's nearby, if yours is still intact. Still wouldn't be all that stable though.

i trimmed off a lot of the lower bumper as well, and initially thought it would be flimsy, but it has held up well

It's flimsyish, but it isn't going anywhere.

seems like it'd take off at highway speeds, but 1500mi later for me and it's still in place.

I've got an ebay intake, so I put it on its side where the airbox is supposed to go.



Thats before I moved it up, but this way you can get an idea of where I put it. I removed that little plastic piece that goes through the grill to the air box.

i've got a rock-it parts intake so i was going to get around to the same thing eventually. if you don't have an aftermarket intake there's not many places you can cram it under the hood.

I think the real question here is why does everyone insist on hacking off the entire lower half of the bumper so it looks like sh** instead of just removing one of the 'slats' to access the shackles??? If you're going to cut it up that much just take the whole damn thing off.

I tried to just remove a slat on each side. My problem was I didn't plan my cut well enough and hacked off more than I should have, so I just slashed about half the skin. Also had some tire rubbage that I decided I needed to even up on the edges, which migrated toward the front.

Better approach angle.

It did improve my approach angle slightly. Actually, it just cut down on the horrid noises when I just say "screw it, I'm doing it"

I happen to like how mine looks, so you can pretty much shove it.


I trimmed mine because I have to get to the support and I think it looks crappy to cut out just a couple of the slats.
