    Very easy install, all you need is a drill, a couple of self tapping screws, 3m tape and space.

    You want to follow the line the bumper has

    Apply 3m home depot tape along the edge and have 1 screw already half way into the valence.

    mount it to the height desired and apply pressure on the valence towards the bumper because the trd reps are solid and curve for the 8.0 bumper. They do not flex like the real ones, this is very important to do because then you will have a gap on each side.

    make sure you pull the protector on the tape a bit, apply pressure and use a screw to hold the valence.

    you need 2 screws so that the valence wont move back n forth, ALSO make sure to flare out/ straighten out the valence so that it flows properly

    once this is done your valence will not flow correctly with the bumper which is why you need to apply pressure again towards the bumper like show in the pic...
    DSCN6644.JPG

    once that is done use a screw towards the other end of the valence, you can use 2 for safety reasons but 1 is fine.

    and its done!

    they are not 100% straight but that is fine with me.....

    If I get a set, I'll probably just sticker bomb the hell out of them, since that kind of thing works on my car.

    But I thought you said you'd only get the 01-02 fronts because they were Genuine TRD
