Factory Look is easy DIY
This part seems overpriced until you actually install it and your Jeep looks super great. Installation is a bit arts and craftsy because you have to cut out a template from paper, tape it on the bumper, and then cut holes in your bumper cover. You only get one chance to do it right so it's a little scary, but this is a cosmetic job that I wanted done right. I didn't want some hack going in with a saw on my bumper. One note on installation: the instructions on re-installing the bumper cover are incomplete and miss a big part. So I had the pleasure of re-installing my cover twice. Otherwise, easy instructions. If you can play Legos and cut paper, you can install this cover. Once I had the bumper off and installed the hitch and electrical, it took 30-45 minutes to do the bezel and replace the bumper.
ProsBumpers are easier to cut than you might think. I used a box cutter blade held in my hand wearing a glove. Good instructions.
ConsSnapping plastic tabs into place does not give one the same satisfaction as torquing 4 hitch bolts. But it sure looks good.
