Well finally got my car back after a week in the shop, sorry for the bad picture its from my phone. Going to clean the car and do a small photo shoot tonight so I will have more up.

Cant wait for the rest of the kit!! Should I be worried about not running with a splash guard? I have the Steeda RAI that sits up in my bay and has a shield on the bottom of it so I believe I am safe there, I drove all yesterday in the rain no problem. Anything else that could get damaged?? [???:)]

More to come!!

If it was there they sanded it down before they painted it. Where they lined it up with my wheel well it istn 100% even it sits a little funny. Its not even with the rest of the fender lip. Not sure if it was bad mounting or flaw in the mold, but other then that it came out good.

I am fabbin up some braces to mount under my radiator to make the front of the bumper more secure and not just hanging there.

Not a fan of the 05/06s but the bumper makes it look much better good job.
The 05 definatly had to grow on me, thanks everyone for the replys! Dropping it with the eibach springs and then looking to get the rear bumper as soon as I can save the cash! [:D]

Honestly its only looks to hang about an inch or so lower then the side skirts but from stock its maybe 2in? I never really payed that much attention now I have the SVT springs on and I am very careful with how I enter places and driveways I have even scraped a few times already even takin it slow.

In a week or two I am trading my SVT springs for eibach springs that will drop it about 1.5in that might be interesting gettin around especially where I am.

If I get them on before you buy the bumper I will take some good pics for you and try to help you out. Buy no matter what I love the bumper!

that looks hot. so if you dont want the full on wide body kit from f2 do you just not get the fender flares and just put on the bumpers and skirts? and whats the difference in the 00-04 and the 05- kits it looks like the 05- have more pieces. just wondering if anyone knew since it was kinda on subject.

As far as I know.. or believe the widebody bumpers come out wider on the front and back thus being the reason why you need the fender flares.


The 04 and 05 are the same just molded to fit the different years should be all the same # of parts.


Yes grill insert was shipped as part of the bumper, not sure if the screws my bodyshop used to secure it were included but they look to just be small SS screws if they arent included.

Hope the helps you all, I am going to look and see if I have a stock height picture that I can compare to the new bumper if not I will go take a picture of my friends car with like coke bottle and then my new bumper to show difference. Also in those pictures I have SVT springs in a week or two I will have pictures with Eibach 1.5 springs.

Fl3tCh: sorry those pictures will have to come tomorrow today was a long say, mothers day and all and me and a freind were running all over tonight looking at a couple mustangs were trying to buy.
