Boss 302 rear diffuser today

So I ordered the boss 302 diffuser kit FROM FORD(because I can get it for dirt cheap) however, when it came in it just came with the valence no instruction sheet or "hardware" that is said to be included with it when you buy from late model restoration.

My question is why exactly is the "hardware" that is included from late model restoration. Is it anything that I can buy from a parts store or what?

To those that have had it installed: did you run into any problems?

Can you do it without removing the bumper?

Thanks!

I just finished my install of this valance last week. I received no "extra" parts but it was not a problem. You reuse the screws and pop up fasteners from your old valance. Except for the white ones that hold up the underside in the middle which are already installed on the Boss one. You do need 2 bolts and nuts for the extra braces on each side next to the exhaust openings. Hope this helps.


PS. Don't even think of trying the install with the bumper on. Download the Roush valance install instructions and it will be a breeze getting the bumper off...and on.

Thanks for the info!

Could you elaborate on the 2 bolts and nuts part for me? Where exactly are they? On the outside of the openings or inside?

If you look at the Boss valance you will see "tabs" with a hole in them on each side next to the exhaust openings. The stock valance doesn't have them. They fold up underneath the car and attach to a hole in vertical part of the frame. I guess they are for extra strength at high speed! You can use zip ties or a bolt to attach them.

That does not look like the boss valance I have. Where is the side portion that wraps around the fender? It appears to end at the exhaust.


Never mind I see now it is for a 2013-14. Mine is 2012 version.

I would not attempt to do this project with the bumper on. It wasn't to hard to get off, plus all the cut marks are already on the inside of the bumper cover. Click image for larger version

That's what is was going to order last summer, looks really good, but I decided to pick up some plasti dip and an hour later voila. Not quite a boss but it came out pretty good IMO.
