Looks sick. I like the fog lights on with headlights off. How much was it for the front bumper, grill surround, and those sick fog lights all together. I really like that patriot color scheme.

Idk for sure but my insurance covered all my conversions but the paint which I had to pay for the white and the new hood. But that was 1,800 for all aftermarket parts except the grille and surround.

But I've seen on eBay that you can get the whole front for around $600 tops and on average $450.

My harness is a starkey harness and is oem quality. It was $189 and came with detailed 4 pages and picture instructions.

I liked the quality of the Starkey kit as well. I bought their complete kit which included the factory bezels, factory fog lights, bulbs, harness, and factory light switch. Makes for a clean install with no cheezy aftermarket toggle switches on the dash. Factory looking, factory operation. Great easy to follow instructions too.

But dat quality. Look at dat quality. I wanted to wait till daylight this morning before work as I work at 10 but I couldn't lol so this morning I'm gonna pull my switch and see if I did it correctly like so the car won't burn.

Where do you find them. I run the whites from silver star ( gold tips) and tried to find the fogs but couldn't.

Also I had to get a new radiator support, oem headlight (267), headlight surround, radiator cover, and a new front bumper support and foam impact absorber. That's why it was so much lol

Are these all the parts I will need?
Thank you.

I'm bidding on that front bumper, is there a lot of people who bid on items like this?
What is the most I should pay for the front bumper if the bidding starts going?

I had to tap two wires with wire caps and plugged it in. It was uber easy. The hardest part was running it to look clean. Sadly I can't get the fuse area to be.

I personally just ran a positive and negative line to the fogs. I have it wired uo to a switch but ima rewire it and have it tap into my side markers since Ima be buying 64 dollar high output bright LED bulbs that dont waste power and it will look cool when my fogs light up when I unlock my car haha

DRL's make it all a pain to re wire around. Your method is simple but mine is full of fuses and its cool to have an oem auto/fog switch. I love just pulling it out and in lol

Why pay someone else to do it when u can do it free. Why buy extra parts when you can easily do it yourself for a fraction of the cost!

We pay for quality on these parts. But to each there own. Now I'm just wanting some bright white lights. Höen or luminotics from stang mods. Maybe the sylvania but I can't find the ultras in the 9145.
