Yes- it actually has 5 bolts plus the two from the bumper. Two are T-bolts

Yeah, super-stoked. I will most certainly add updates as I have them. Trying to wrap up my honey-do list so I can focus.

Few pics out on the sun today. Need to put in the fogs and finish the trim up front.

Looking good. Shadow line came out nice. Did you spray them or wrap ?

Sprayed. 9+ hours of sanding and refinishing for 6 pieces of aluminum trim and 3 pieces of rubber trim (remaining pieces were new OEM parts). In the end what worked for me on the aluminum pieces was 320 grit to bare metal, 2 light coats of SEM trim black, wet sand 1000 grit, 2 more coats and the spot wet sanding and paint where needed. The rubber trim took a lot of sanding with 3 grades of paper to get an acceptable surface finish

Fuel pump went out on its 1st trip out. Luckily it died as I was pulling in the drive away. That's what you call lucky

Thanks.....I live in the city so I'm keeping the neighborhood pets out.
It's a temporary solution until I get a permanent fence built.
