Default n-fab Full Replacement R.S.P. Front Bumper

i recently got a little carried away while driving my truck on some snowy hills and fields and ended up clipping the front bumper on an embankment. The damage, while not severe... did destroy my front bumper. So i see this as a chance to upgrade.

I've decided that I want to go with the n-fab replacement front bumper. However, i am a little confused on what it replaces.

Our bumpers have the lower metal section and also the plastic upper section. Both pieces of my bumper have been damaged, so will i need to purchase the n-fab bumper AND the OE upper plastic piece too? Or does the n-fab bumper replace everything?

Thanks, and if anybody has pics of this bumper on our trucks please post up, cause i have yet to see it.

and this is the bumper for those not familiar http://www.jcwhitney.com/n-fab-rsp-f...12&filterid=j1

and the truck its goin on

Look like it only replaces the metal part of the bumper according to this.

I actually looked at the exact same bumper. I'm curious to see what people say. Keep us posted. By the way, which wheels are those and what size? Truck looks sweet! Very nice!

That would leave some exposed areas on each side, wouldn't it?

Most of those bumpers do. I like some of the full bumper replacements. Mainly because I don't like all the front end crap these expose.
