I first bought a spare front bumper cover at Carlisle with the thought of having it painted and swapping it with the original when the stone chips start to add up. I finally got it to the paint shop but when I started mounting it, I found the top and bottom stiffener brackets were missing. SOAB! So, start looking for some only to find they run $30 apiece. Not going to happen, especially since I've drawn blood on the exposed screws while trying to clean down there, blind. So, I took my originals off, measured it up, replicated in a CAD file and had what you see cut in 16 ga. stainless on a hydro cut machine, taped it for 5mm button heads. Fits like a glove, looks and works better. Note, the right and left sides are identical, just turned 90 deg.

After all the effort, I cut some extra's beyond what I needed for my two bumpers. If there was some interest, I'd consider selling some and for less than you can by OEM.

I'd be interested in a pair shipped to 17350.  Email me a price and payment preference.
Thanks, Doug

I know this is an old threat. But if you still have a set I'd like to know the cost.
