Current bumper > other bumper. G'head and sell me Manny's once you're done with it. How bad is the front bumper? Lip survive?...

I like the OEM bumpers on the car 100x better than the kit to be honest.

Damn you and your harsh harsh but oh so f'n true words......... :-( ahhhh I think I know what I'm gonna do.... What about this idea...

That would work too, although the sxt rear bumper with lip does look pretty damn good the way it is, as well as the skirts. I just like the OE bumpers way better than the kits available. You could keep/fix your bumpers and swap back whenever you wanted but using the OEMs would be way cleaner.

Then....go have custom hubs made so your wheels are spaced well with the flares. Or...get wider wheels.

Then....post pictures.
