Just like the title says I want to put the SS grill and bumper on my wagon. Would it all just bolt on, anything else I would need to buy?


Thanks!

I've read folks say that it's just the grille and bumper cover, and I've read folks say you also need to swap out the metal bumper support. I think you can skip the bumper support, but I'd imagine there would be a gap that you could not see, but feel if you were to kneel on that area to do maintenance.

That makes sense, thanks. Sounds negligible. Now I can be on the lookout for a cover.

The bumper support on the RM has a dip in it to follow the cover, and leave space for the grille. The gap with the Impala grille is about 3/4~1 inch. The support for the grille is different for the Impala as well. It does not have the extended length for the taller grille. Other than that it will bolt up.
