for those LS owners,if you swap your front bumper,which front bumper did you use and where did you purchase it?

seeing as how you have a 2011 (5th Gen) you can use any 5th gen fenders and facia. you only have 2 choices, either the LS/RS (V6) front facia or an SS (V8) facia....both will work.

He can do that too. I have seen a few LS/LTs with the ZL1 bumper.

Zl1 front bumper?
There are a few companies that sell a full kit to do it, where it comes with the fog lights and harnesses to make everything work, reuse your factory fogs/DRLs if you have them, as the ZL1 bumper uses fogs and DRLs. I think IKON sells one and I know Ebay has a few vendors that sell one as well with different levels of completeness. I don't know how good the quality is on the Ebay versions and if they are comparable to Duraflex or are of better quality. As far as I know none of them can be ordered pre-painted, so you also have to factor that in.

Don't forget,if you buy a different facia,don't forget to make sure the body lines on the facia match up with your hood.I believe there's a few that don't,nothing a body shop could'nt fix.

Actually, Gary's Custom's sold me my ZL1 fascia pre-painted, with grilles installed. The paint was and is still a perfect match! The guy knows what he's doing. It hasn't failed any where, even though its got a few tiny dings from the road...

The only thing missing from the set was a set of fog light brackets that were compatible with my original SS fog lights. Those were like 20 bucks off ebay.

For install, straight out of the box, I just swapped the original harness onto it (later replaced with one that powered both sets of fog lights), and installed the ZL1 fascia - plug and play - after the removal of the original. In between there I installed the eagle eyes at the same time from the stock non-RS set...

I wonder if Gary's still doing this type of work. Haven't heard about him in a good minute.
