Changing 2012 v6 bumper to GT

Ok so I have searched all over but I can't find the answer I'm looking for. I have a 2012 MCA and I want to put on a GT bumper but can I re use my MCA grill? If I can what all do I need? If I can't what do I have to do to hook up the gt driving lights to my oem harness for the fog lights my v6 has already?

You won't be able to use your current grill. The clips will not line up with the GT Bumper inserts. Now your current wiring harness should be complete plug and play for the GT fog lights. Nothing more needed.

Now my question is how much you want for your current fog lights, because I'm interested......lol

Way to ruin a perfectly good v6 model by installing a Gt bumber on it. Lmao. Why, oh why. Lol

As long as those silly looking fog lights are not on your GT bumber then it will be awesome looking. Lol. I think the standard V6 bumper is far better looking than the standard bumper. Lol

Looks great. I just got my new GT front bumper yesterday, also from New Take-Off. It's going on my '11 V6. I'm a big fan of the fog lights from way back (see my '66 in my pictures). I was impressed with the service they provided by assembling everything first. I also got the low splitter. Starkey furnished the fog light wiring harness. I'm looking to do this this weekend and hope it comes out as good as the OP's.

Thanks. I do think the V6 front end looks good, but I have always loved two driving lights in the grille and there aren't many splitter options for the V6.

I love the front fascia of the V6. The GT fascia would be great if it were not for those silly looking fog lights. Lol. So glad the 2015 doesn't have the fog lights in the center. Lol.

The v6 facia just doesn't look that aggressive to me.

I forgot to mention that including the excellent wiring harness and switch from Starkey, I have about $800 and five hours invested in this swap. Probablly could have done it in two hours with some help and having watched some YouTubes first. Very easy job.
