Does any one have an idea where I can get the Rear Bumper besides the dealership?

Hey Matt,
I JUST got your message.
My phone has been acting nuts lately. I will give you a call later today. Didn't want you to worry.

Koehlerindustries, go to parts.com. Google the p/n of the bumper and look it up there. That's where I got all the parts for the front.

KRKitt1, did you install your scanner yet?

The new nose is on! All I need are foglights and a chin spoiler (holding out for a carbon fiber one).
It came in last Tuesday and went into paint, got it back Wednesday, and installed it Thursday.

On the foglight, The Ford Escape and GT500 front take the same foglights. On the carbon fiber airsplitter, Check out JLT or Ninosport.com

Thanks! I looked at JLT, but not Ninosport. I also didn't know the Escape lights were the same. I found them for ~$77 each on parts.com.

May have to pull out KRF3 if I can't get a problem fixed on the car. I guess this is what happens when you wait til the last minute to get stuff done. I'm just down on myself right now cause I can't get something to work. I have 2 weeks to get the car done and today it is cold!!!! So have to wait til later to work on the scanner. On a good note, I made the defusers to set right behind the tinted lense.

Sweet. I can't wait to see it. Jason (1999ws6) is working on my amber unit right now, but it'll have to go in the grile until I get the hood (probably next year). Did you get the measurements yet?

Height, width of the scoops and the width of the portion between the scoops.

So what's wrong that will keep you from going? It sucks, since I know how much you were wanting to go.

Ok, sorry for the delay again. Here it is, The width of the openings are 16 1/2 inches by 1 inch tall, the portion between the scoops is 1 1/8, Remember this may not be the same on all hoods, even Trufiber. Once I talk to Taoworm this weekend, I may be able to help you with the lense's

Does the Trufiber Venom Hood re use your factory front latch or do I have to buy one specific for the venom hood? I have read online that the bolts holding the latch on to the hood are differen't in size? Help is required!!!!

Thank you very much! He just got the parts in so it shouldn't be long. Good luck on your trip. You should definately post a vid when it's all done, especially the exhaust. I have Mac boomtubes axlebacks and love them. They sound pretty close.
