Kaminari is urethane and will cost about $1,195 from the Ecelica store. Vizage is urethane and it costs $680, but it is a lip kit and not full bumpers. Wings West is urethane too and is $570 at the Ecelica store. Again, it is a lip kit as well.

Full kaminari or ww are your best bet for urethane kits that fit well.

Yeah, Wings West is probably your best bet. However, if you are at all concerned about weight, you may want to think about getting fiberglass. It's lighter.


Knowing the path and choosing the path are two different things.

well, since he is complaining about the rough winter and how he 'needs' a new bumper...i wouldn't recommend fiberglass. if his original front bumper was cracked or torn up, then fiberglass would definately not be an improvement. he needs urethane. thumbsup

fiberglass is still strong, but if you do plan or are worried about nailing things, why get a body kit at all??

Urethane will still break, but won't crack or shatter upon a certain impact of something...

I suggest VIZAGE...only like 2 or 3 people have it. EVREYONE has Kaminari and WW...go with your own taste, not what others tell you to get.
