Looking for a little more info on this as I bought a rubicon takeoff and went to install. Does anyone know the size nutsert you need for bracket for the air dam!

Also, those who have completed, did you change over the led fog lights back to stock or how did you overcome getting the LED to work? Thanks!

Found them from the dealer M10 rivnuts. Also for anyone else installing. The LEDs seem to work, plugged into the Sport harness... thus far. Will keep an eye on if they start to flicker.

Hey I'm looking at doing the same today. Did you experience any flickering yet on the lights?

Any chance anyone has the m10 rivnut part #?

And, one other question ... is a rivnut tool required to put the rivnut in?

Thanks!

As a followup to the LED lights working in the SportS, without LED headlights. I only seem to run into issues when the turn signals are on. I see that there is some flickering.

Quick note: for the Rubi plastic bumper on the sport, rivnuts aren’t needed as the stamped Skid plate is same. For the steel bumper w steel skid plate, rivnuts will be needed for the steel bracket attachment. Hope this makes sense.

Pic below shows the 2 brackets that need to be attached to frame which aren’t on sport.

I'm glad I ran into this thread. I bought the rubicon steel bumper and skid plate from another forum member. I needed this so I can mount the new Smittybilt X20 comp I got from Northridge4x4 on black Friday. Now I just have to wait for the dealer to receive the parts so I can get this done.
