Once you get the original bumper off you will get more if an idea where it mounts to with all aftermarket parts there is always a bit of modification to get them to fit :)

If it is simply a frontal protection device that's a no no, if however it's a mount for a piece of recovery equipment, a winch, then its fine. Allegedly.

Fairly straightforward yes - I took it to the garage simply because i dont have the time right now but from what i understand the only difficulty was getting it all to line up. The fitting itself wasnt difficult at all

Garage charged £144 for anyone whose interested - I thought it was a fair price considering the time taken to fit (2/3 hours)

Looking good B)

Does it have a square US style towbar socket at the bottom? i believe you can get winch trays that connect into there for a smaller winch, or use for a towball. That gives you the utility reason for fitting it as its now a mounting point for accessories ;-)
