I currently have the chrome slt bumpers, but would like to switch to the black sport bumpers in the future. What all is necessary to switch over? I haven't been able to determine what all I would need to do to get this swap done.

Thanks ahead of time.

Since you have a 2006, I'm pretty sure that if you are willing to cut your chrome bumper some you can make the sport cover fit over it without having to get all the other parts.

Interesting. That saves quite a bit of cheddar
Can anyone elaborate on what needs cutting

Never mind. Found some directions from Hemibabe. Looks easy as pie.
