I've been messing with this idea for a while ... I photoshoped a pic of my X to see what it might look like. I did the wheel well bulges & the hood too. I never fell in love with the look - so I never got around to doing it !

Seeing yours and liking the result might make me take another look this winter while the X is warm in the garage ...


are there no laws about bumpers in TX?
Not to my knowledge. I drive around like this all the time and never have a problem I have even asked cops about it and they said its not something they would know how to cite. You are not required to have mud flaps either, so yeah. I know 3 guys with tube fenders on the front of their jeeps and they never have law you only have to have a rear view mirror the sides are not required, nor is a windshield afaik, though windshield wipers are. It would be different if my rear plate was on the bumper, but since its on the hatch its all good. I dont even have my front plate on, and my tails have been tinted for awhile without any problems, of course they are pretty light to begin with.
