yeah of course and you can take the end caps off right?

Yes, it's an exact copy of the mopar one, just heavy-duty aluminum. It's a hell of a lot lighter than steel.
They update open box stuff almost daily so keep an eye out. Couldn't beat the price.

Another question for everyone. What fog light brackets did you use for the sport fogs?

yes sorry just waiting for the rivnut gun to come in so I can get the skid plate on, and have to get new plastic crash cans cause all the clips came broken then was going to take pictures. Pretty simple install though biggest pain in the ass was the little bolts to take the end caps off.

Are you using regular rivnuts or the Mopar ones? The Mopar rivnuts have a hex shaped body so you just need to thread a bolt into it and insert it into the hex shaped hole and tighten it down to crush the rivnuts. Works great, that’s all I did to install mine.

I’ll try again but we tried that and it just rounded out the rivnut... I’m using the hex ones that came with the bumper
