I'm sure you could use what's there. Usually they say it won't work because the bumper cover is different in some way, meaning you would have to slot or cut it. See if you can get the installation instructions and then check it out.

Nfab's prerunner bar requires drilling in the bumper regardless. When I spoke with them they told me regardless I would have to drill holes in the bumper. This is why I didnt go with it. Then I ended up with a full replacement....

Yea i really dont want to drill my bumper either. I might just end up giving them a call or run down to 4wheelparts and ask them what would be best. I like the replacement bumpers as well but they are pricey. Thanks for the replies guys!

Ya they are pricey. I went to nfabs HQ and they were no help.... Just told me to drill or get the pre runner bar which is expensive too.

Full replacements are pricey. I agree. But I do think iron bull is a good price and it really changes the entire look of the truck. I turn heads everywhere now. I think it helps with resale. I also sold my stock bumper which helped. But you could keep the stock and when you sell the truck put stock back on and sale The iron bull. They hold value.
