      So I while back I bought the complete 4 motion and euro bumper from Ecs and someone local around me wants to buy it. I can't for the life of me get it to fit. I have tried with and without the foam. And I can't figure out a trick to get the rub strip to snap into the bumper. Any tricks?

      And the bumper onto te car, sides won't line up or slide in all the way. I've always had trouble from Ecs, could just be my luck

      Was thinking that, I heard these bumPers were a hit or miss, looks like I got a hit for once. I'm at 22.2" dd without axle or sway issues . But the air goes Monday.
