You will need the clips for the lip.....and fog lights and harness for wiring. otherwise just use our old hardware off the LS bumper. the "splash guards and inner fenders will not bolt up on the very bottom but thats about it.....I just did mine about 3 months ago.....heres a pic for u.....





Have fun! It looks killer IMO!

All you need are the left and right lower brackets from the SS/Sport models and the bottom of the fascia will fit perfectly on your LS/LT.

Just wire the fogs to your parking lights or low beams. Or if you want the whole set up, get a relay, OEM switch and dash piece.
wireing the fogs to my parkinglights is not going to short nething out right?.... i as this becouse i wanna run a 30K hid setup in the fogs.

Nothing will short. I have them wired to my parking lights with HIDs, just make sure to change the parking light fuse from 10A to 15A, since the fogs originally have 15A.

And HIDs use 6A on start up so 6x2=12A > 10A but 15A > 10A so no problem. Hehe

Thanks. Do the fog lights just pop into place...?
The fog light holes in the fascia have clips molded in -- you slide the fog light housing into the hole and it locks in place. I do not know if when you buy aftermarket fog lights they came with the housing -- but if you get used SS fog lights they will slide in -- don't need to buy a bracket for them.

If you look carefully at my picture in post #3 on page 1 you can see the clips -- the "bucket" in the fog light hole was a tube I made and put slots in it for my air intake.
