Cons: Even though the bumper is sealed, I had to remove it last week for some other upkeep, and there seems to be a lot of water/dirt inside.

Price: $300.00
Pros: Looks awesome, allows you to keep factory fog lights
Cons: Instructions weren't always clear.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Taking off the front bumper will be the lion's share of work for this installation. The removal of the 8 bolts is made harder by their location and the interference you'll run into with other pieces of the front end as you try to get your socket in there. Once the front bumper is off, the only complaint I had was that the instructions were not clear at all on how the fill plate was to go in - if you follow the instructions, you're in for a frustrating time as you try to force the plate in between the bumper and the grill. On the other hand, putting the plate in first makes getting the bolts in a little harder - you have to get them from below rather than above. I'd recommend putting the filler plate in first.

Comments: This is a good front bumper. It looks great and was very easy to install. Just remove factory front bumper, line up the holes and put the factory hardware back in. It has no winch mount. It has holes for lights.

Pros: nice clean bumper mounts without mods
Cons: none yet
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Upgrade to front bumper was a must for me, nerf bars next to protect the new paint and bodywork. I like the finish and the look of the large tube. 6.75" round foglights mount to the built in tabs with no problem.
