Less than $700? Sure, parts are expensive here... I thought the new bumper
came earlier than '99, but I guess you're right. If it's an S2 bumper, the
foglights should have a square inner corner. I seem to recall that the Cab
has the inner corners of the foglights rounded off.

Hope you'll be able to find the correct bumper...


PS I've noticed several inaccuracies in TGSWN's drawings, up to the point
that some drawings might depict anything but the part I'm trying to
identify... and the foglights in the Cab's front bumper don't seem to be
mentioned anywhere. NLA? Hardly...
