where did you get yours from? and also thats enough to hold it all on do you have pics of the install or did you just space the screw out evenly also did you have to cut the back bumper or bring down your exhaust or did it fit perfect

Carbon Creations. Fitment wasn't the greatest, but I wanted to match the weave along with the rest of the kit. I used the screw holes from the mudflaps so I didn't have to drill the bumper. The kit didn't have holes, so I had to drill holes in the lip itself. I dropped the muffler off the hanger when I installed the kit. As you can see I made a heat shield so it would help prevent melting issues. I did not have to do anything to the stock bumper and I've had the rears on for a while. I've had to pull it off to put new, stronger double sided tape and it was tough to pull off. 3M double side FTW...

i did it the exact same way rpm6100 did, except mine came with 4 brackets. so i just spaced out 4 along the bottom and 4 self tapping on the sides with double sided tape. not really a good picture, but you can kinda see the heads of the screws.


this method of installing is so much better than drilling into the face of the bumper. so now i can take off my lip w/o worry about finding a new bumper

they actually came with my kit, but im sure the measurements will vary depending on how you mount it. so you should really measure how low the lip hangs from the bumper and then decide on the measurements of the bracket.

if you bought a fiberglass rear lip, be forwarned that they don't fit the greatest. i know with mine, we left it in the paint booth with the heat cranked and basically molded it to my bumper. then alittle double sided tape and two screws on the side (if you have mud flaps the holes should line it, if not you'll see two indents in the bumper which should line up). no drill is required if you have selftapping screws
