      i wanna put a 99+ bumper on my 98, but i have a few questions...

      1) will it just bolt right up with the same hardware?

      2) will the fog lights hook up the same way? just unplug the old and plug in the new?...or are the fog lights gonna be a PITA?

      thanks.

      I put a 99+ bumper on my 98. If you get the bumper already attached with the bumper reinforcement then yes you will only need those two bolts which attach reinforcement to frame. If you have to buy the skirt seperately from the reinforcement you will need to order several screws from FPN or somewhere else. Yes the fog lights just plug into where the old ones were. BTW pics of mine in signature link. If you email Torrie at FPN he will send you a diagram showing every part and # needed for this.

      Are you paying more for that, or are they doing it as a "favor" to you?:)

      um, i dont know if i should answer that, heh. the estimate they wrote for me is completely legitimate, theres no lying and NO insurance fraud was committed, but heres the deal. a piece of the rear bumper was pushed into my spare tire, so he put a new spare on the estimate, just because we wont know how badly its damaged until we remove the spare - thats legitimate - thats how body shops write estimates, so as to minimize the 'extras' when they finally do take it all apart. if i dont need a new spare, theres some money to play with. the same goes for my exhaust which is demolished, and i need a new exhaust system anyway, so im going with another catback system, and the demolished exhaust is pushed up against my shock (bilsteins), so there might be some more money to play with, if i dont need new rear shocks, also an alignment, which i already had done on my own since the accident. so it all depends. the estimate was written for the what looks to be damaged, but some of those things might turn out to be OK; then again, we didnt open the rear door for fear that we wouldnt get it closed again, and when he takes it all apart, he might find a few hundred dollars more worth of damage. i might come out of this not paying much for all the extra stuff i want, or i could end up paying a lot for it, in which case, i wouldnt do all of it, but the shop is owned and operated by a family friend and hes gonna hook me up as far as prices go.
