I got home and removed the old tail light base. The bumper hangs so far back there it's ridiculous. Like w/ all of my previous 'Monts, I will modify the brackets and shorten that stand off by about 6". It will tuck the bumper nicely against the body. This is what you start with: I'll drill a hole in the shock absorber, it'll let me collapse it to the flange. I should get about 3-3.5" of reduction in the standoff. I'll also cut that honkin' block of steel down and pick up another 1.5-2" I've stared at it enough to get my plan together,....I'll buy the GT 350/500 tails tomorrow. Another 500.00 down the drain.
