You ripped your dealer ordered custom plastic bumper end caps off? I can see taking the floaties off, but the end caps?

That was per pair? And do they come with hardware?

That price will be each and they do not come with the screws. You can pick some screw up for cheap if you dont have the ones from the jugs.....

This thread has confirmed what I have long suspected, that is that most don't read the all the posts and just comment on the first, or last, post in a thread. Now I understand where mrblaine is coming from.

Agreed! You know whats funnier though, when some people try to sell the floaties in the classifieds, or on craigslist for like 50 bucks a pair. Ridiculous! Seen it before LOL

Unless you have some sort of corner protection, dont remove the rears. They truly protect your rear corners.

I had a friend remove them. I had the friend put them back on, and that DAY hit her end caps while coming down hard on a rock, denting them in. That would have been her corners.

Just a thought. Do what makes you happy.
