FOG LIGHT INSTALLATION





TEST FIT WITH FOGLIGHTS






HOOD GAPS WERE HORRIBLE DUE TO REVERSE KIT WITH THIS BUMPER



REMOVED REVERSE HOOD TILT KIT, AND RETURNED TO FACTORY HINGES





INSTALLED THE MESH BEHIND ALL THE PORTS IN THE BUMPER





PULLED THE BACK BUMPER OFF TO PAINT THE LOWER GROUND EFFECTS TO MATCH THE FRONT
