Looking good! Same one I have. Mine ended up just under the fender as well...but once I trimmed them, I had plenty of room. :D

Looks good, just needs some real front lights, the wally world fogs look kinda outta place.

But just my opinion!

Looks good, Mine has the same issue with fender clearance, a little tighter on one side than the other.

yeah I know the fogs suck,I just wanted to have something till I figure something out I always ran my stock fogs when they were on the old bumper.I drive all dark backroads on my way to work in the morning.They actually work pretty good for 15 dollar lites.

Thats a great idea ,I'm an electrician and I probably have 50 of those out in the garage I'm gonna set mine up like that.:smokin:you know now looking at them u could probably use those as light mounts to with the hole on top.

You can, just might have to drill out slightly ,depending on bolt size.

Quick Phone cam shot of the new bumper. Trying to decide wether to run a new power supply or use the fog light leads and switch. Any of you do this?

the fenders look really good from the front. Can we see some pictures of it from the side? I am trying to decide how to cut mine.
