The bumper? No. the Skid Plate, yes you will need brackets and nutserts.

Just did the same swap on my Sport S, you will want the metal skid, and the brackets that attach to the frame and the skid. Besides that it was pretty much a straight cross.

It’s useable without the skid I just would not want that much open space. You could leave the metal “bracket” type skid on it from your plastic bumpers but would look very open.

I just bought one off Ebay, $150. The brackets I ordered from BAM for about $60.

Here's a parts list form this thread of what you will need to install skid, list includes the skid plate.

I did not order the closeout panel, I just trimmed the original one.

Did mine awhile back and just didn't add the skid because the bumper I bought didn't come with a skid either. Honestly, ya you can see a little more but you really don't need it.

Yeah I run it open now not a huge fan of the look so probably going to look into finding a skid plate.

Where are these prices from? When I look it up I'm finding the skid plate about $10-$15 more and the rest of the items are more too.

That list was posted a month or two back. Price has gone up on most things recently.

I also realized that list is missing 7 u-nuts to attach the skid. They are M8 x 1.25, I ordered a pack from Amazon.

Did you have any issues with the open box?
Some very minor scuffs (not scratches) on the skid but let's be honest. I am going to scratch the hell out of it anyways.
