Cobra bumper

Hey guys so my front bumper on my gt is all cracked so I want to switch to the termi front bumper and the shop yesterday that it won't just hook up directly and I have to change out some other things and it would cost me like $1700 I think tho is just way too high and crazy. Do you guys think it's crazy? Do I actually need to change out parts for it to fit

The only change required is to drill two new holes in the top mounting portion of the cover. You have to push the top of the bumper further in to match the hood.

Everything else bolts directly in place.

I'm doing the same thing. I ordered a new bumper. Fog bezels. Fog lights. And the plugs that I can slice into stock fog lights plugs

The 99/01 bumper is a direct bolt up and, IMO, looks better. They are super hard to get but if that shop can find an OEM one and its the same price then I'd go that route.

An OEM one will be $600 or more.
Those things cost you your first born.

Everything you need with cheapest prices in this thread:

I didn't use that header panel in the kit at lmr, I don't think anyone did.

This guy paints them to your color and ships them $300 for painted cobra bumper and $275 for GT. Very good price. He's from Danville Illinois

I got my cobra front bumper cover on amazon for like $170 plus shipping. It is an aftermarket plastic cover. It is an exact copy of the OEM cover though. It mounted right up. The hood overhangs a tad but it still looks great. I can see if i can find the link if u want it. U can find the fog light bezels on americanmuscle.com Hope this helps.

It fits pretty close and its a hell of a lot cheaper than the one from a cobra. I think it looks good

I needed the header piece cause mine was crashed, but it does allow you to install the floating pony in there.
