not really. the labor is what youre really paying for. mine was about $500 and it took the guy 2 full days of working. probably about 18 hours or so. this bumper is quite a bit more complex than mine... so $550 is definately fair

yeah i really had no choice. i was tired of runnin around with a bent bumper with a cracked valance.

i wish i could have found a way to incorporate my stock fogs into this bumper though. but the HID's do okay i guess :)

It looks good with the Hella's now. Which models are they? I assume it would be ok to use the Foglight wiring, maybe get better fuse for the more power that the lights will draw. Dude that bumper would look soo good with that Winch that mikerider PS in there!!!!! Do it!!!
