it looks like the 03 will fit. not sure if 05-07 is very different, but it must be because those bars look different. sucks you probably have to put your factory bumper back on. :/

Whoever told you all.you had to do was shave the crash foam had no idea what they were talking about. You either need a euro crash bar which is smaller or you need to actually cut the stock crash bar with a grinder to fit or make your own.

Yeah I have been hearing that alot now. lol Okay so I would hate to give up, ya know? I waited for a month for it to get here. I am going back to my friends house later to give it a try with a grinder and sawzall. Ill let you guys know how it went later. Im hoping I only need to cut the corners off. Otherwise Ill email the guy on ebay to see how much the crash bar would be after shipping. If its alot, I will probably just sell it. But I have faith in my sawzall skills. :)

Yes let's hear and see pics.

Btw I have pics of someone who did this a while back. Pics show exactly how much he cut off. This will be what I do to mine along with adding closed mini-cell foam to fill the open parts of the crash bar. This foam is super dense and easy to cut and shape and does not degrade.
