Front Bumper Removal
This bodykit requires you to remove all four wheels for easier clearance to work with. The vehicle must be equipped with
proper working brake system and a flat workspace. If the vehicle is parked on an incline this will create an abundance of
stress on the lift jack from the side which may likely cause the car lift jack to collapse (especially with OEM car jack).
First prepare the work area and protect the headlights,
taillights, surrounding areas on the fender, side skirts and rear
quarter panels with masking tape. Preferably with painters’
masking tape, which are blue for a clean release. This step is
