    Or you could buy the black piece that the xrunners have. It just mounts on there and is removable.

    Check out the forums on xr-underground.com there are usually a few people selling them on there...
    You can usually find one for around $25

    I ended up selling my x-runner cover.. and decided to paint it... the xrunner cover only "blacks out" the top half of the lower bumper... I wanted the whole piece black

    doesnt cover the whole lower valence, also IIRC you have to screw it into your lower valence. leaving holes if ever removed.
    i could be wrong :confused:

    paint is a little easier, and a lot more permanent. :D


    soap and water/ friend to help/ heat gun/ time and patience is required to get the vinyl done.
