Damn what is with everyone searching for stuff so far away. Its so much worse than not knowing about the deals that are to far away to grasp haha.

I say no, cost in gas alone makes it not worth it to me... but than again i live in $4.15 a gallon land. Have him meet you somewhere in the middle

If it matches, yes at least send the money.

If you do go borrow a friends truck… or drive a lot slower than you might nomally.

good luck.

XL bumpers are ugly.. get it. offer a lower price since youd be driving. your gears should be fine.

Not much of a choice in the midwest. It seems like all the good junkyard part finds are never close by.

I just searched car-part.com nothing in black closer than 561 miles lol. I guess if you really wanted one, you could go to kansas city to Certifit and pick up a paint to match bumper and valence for like 100ish. You'd have to paint it though lol. oh and fog lights are like 25 each too

leave the bodylift on it, and put in fenders. you WILL chew your fender with 35's if you take the BL off.

I agree with s10 killer, self clearance.

A few updated.
1) finally (!) took off the sway bar and it rides so much smoother now.
2) Gears are now fully broken it and I am in love with the power gain.
3) updated my badges thanks to An Nguyen.
4) Will swap headlights soon to Blacked out OEMs.
5) STX grille coming in a few weeks/ months.
