Looks good! Which brand and size of lights are you going to add? I'm going to be adding 3 up front on my front end replacement and am torn on the size.

the front facsia cover does have to come off and 2 holes drilled where the licence plate bracket and then it bolts on, took me 20mins to install. It was freakin easy.

I took the plastic panel off and used a dremel and cutting wheel, made quick work of it.

Here's my 2011 Ram Outdoorsman with a Smittybilt Light Bar. I am running 2 x 6" PIAA Off-Road Lights and they are great for the purpose - use them quite a bit when Off-Road or on the Highway at night (when I can light them up anyways). Using KC Light Covers that I picked up in the US.

Even the big horns dont come with them, I believe they are an option on all trim levels?

hey guys the hooks were a 5min install, they were soooooo easy to do, just loosen 2 nuts on both sides and install the nuts and the supplied bolt, only tedious part was the trimming on the plastic.

install took 20mins, just the 2 plastic screws on both side of teh fender well, 2 metal screws in that meet the bumper to the fender, the 4 bolts along the underside of the black valance, and remove the grill, off she comes, drill 2 holes on where the licence plate bracket goes and insert the bolts, tighten amd reinstall the bumper cover.
