Guys... Just a little advice please....

Are the bumpers on the Deluxe model the same as the Non deluxe model?

I have noticed 2 inserts on the front & rear bumpers on the Deluxe & none on the non deluxe like mine.

As I am after a set of bumpers I have come across a deluxe bumper but by taking the 2 fixed inserts off will they be correct?

Atleast they didnt put the spare tire holder in the gas tank like mine....just spells disaster. I actually think It was recalled at some point.

Buuuutt.....Looking good man. Which color you going to hit it with?
