Thanks!Nice Smokey plate.
Yeah, definitely need a bumper for protection. Who is going to fab for you?
I'll chime in with my Morimoto XB LED experience; love them, very clean cutoff pattern, 5k lumens is just right and not too purple! I don't have any drive time on factory LED's or other brands, but I'm persnickety for high quality and the the Morimoto product has always been excellent. Would purchase again and again.
I‘m not sure yet on the fab. I didn’t realize that it is as complicated as it is. The design and fab are straight forward, but if you redo the tire carrier, apparently you need some sort of certification. More info to follow.
