hi.. i have done this to mine... the wiring for the lights needs a little mod and the headlamp motors have a different plug.. you'll need the plastic bumper supports that mount behind the bumper skin and thats 3 parts..
you'll need to drill 2 holes in the x member and 2 in the wing lower...
the washer bottle is different to take the corner supports..
other than that.. easy peasy..

the brakets are slightly different shape and that's why the washer bottle is needed as it fowls the bottle..
I'm sure people have modded the original brakets to fit but they only bolt on with 2 bolts and i had them available so saved myself some agg in changing them...

Loom?.. the headlamp side light wiring needs extending by about 5inches and plugs for the level motors.. but everything looks good in those pics.. if it comes with the bolts as well even better..

Yes. It's the 3 pin plug for the level motor and an extension for the sidelight wire. The original indicator lamp holders fit straight in...

do you change the middle brackets that the front panel bolts to
or just the wing brackets and have to drill 2 holes in wing for the plastic piece the bumper clips into

Hi there.. no...just a few holes in the xmember and the wings.. it will all make sense when you piece it together.
