Re: cobra bumper help!!

you tend to get what you pay for, I would recommend going the route of buying a good fitting bumper, save yourself time/hassle and have a better end result.

You need bumper, fog bezels, fog lights, running pony, Radiator Cover (from mach 1 or 03/04 cobra NO others or it wont be right).

then the wiring harness for fogs (diff connector than GT)

if you have OEM hood the bumper will rub where the hood meets it on non cobra hood unless you modify it somehow (pull it back more (bumper tabs) etc

I pulled this from my other thread...

Pigtails 23.40 CJ Pony Parts
Radiator Trim Flow through Panel 69.00 AM
Chin Spoiler 242.00 (OUCH!!!!!!) Tousley Ford, MN Ask for Steve in parts
Radiator Cover(somewhat optional, many choices) I have yet to decide whether I am going stainless in engine compartment so holding off on this for now.

Paint/prep 80 for me

Note: Each local Certifit has different stock and different prices. Stock changes at each location as well. Also note that Charlotte had no Cobra hoods and was not restocking where Raleigh has nine. A discontinued item at one local Certifit may not be dis continued at another Certifit. They don't ship between wharehouses and are LOCAL PICK UP only. So you may have to search and maybe even have a local forum member do you a favor.
