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.

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

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?
