It's time consuming but If you follow all 33 pages of instructions, it's pretty easy. Hardest part or me was relocating the radiator. I ended up using some clamps to hold the lower bracket with the pad to the to bottom of the drop tube to hold it in place but it still sucked. Had to grind some of the body cuz the bracket wouldn't sit flush. Took a while but it worked out great in the end!

It'll come with them. I used a 98-00 summit kit on my truck because it was cheaper. Filler neck extension and vent tube extension weren't the same but whatever, everything is on correctly with a few cheap parts at the hardware store. The kit is on sale right now too btw

I drove for a whole semester with no bumper while it was back at home being painted. Now that I look back on it, I'm surprised that cops didn't give me any trouble.

i drove by a few of them last night and i didn't get stopped for it. luckily cops don't give too much crap to lifted truck guys.

on a side note, i could hear sand and stuff off of the street hitting the paint. -___- i forgot about that part hahah
