Subtle front bumper for 03-05
Monday, March 10, 2014 7:06 PM
Hello all, does anyone make something subtle for the front bumper cover? I'm not looking for a big body kit style bumper and I've already had an rksport lip and just sat way to low compared to the LSS side skirts.

Aside from the stock LSS front cover is there anything else mild that is readily available? I might grab another rk lip but we'll see.

Thanks for any input!

By far the extreme tuner front end is what you want. It's based off of the concept turbo sport cav which was BEAUTIFUL. Unfortunately it's not made anymore and those who have one (*cough* KYLE, VINCE) are hanging onto them. I'm too lazy to look for pics of the actual kit but here's the TURBO SPORT CAV

Yep, I love that cover, that's the trouble though. You can't find these anywhere.

Same with the LS Sport bumper. I'd get another of these, but I can't seem to find one anywhere either. I've found a few suppliers, but they want around $300 it would seem for it. That's insane

Yeah unfortunately they're pretty costly. Best bet is to call a whole bunch of yards and have them call you if they get one in. That's if you can wait, of course.

I'm trying to remember what lip PJ used on his base model front bumper. Looked nice, just don't remember the brand.

Didn't he use the RKsport? I had it, sat much lower than the side skirts. Kinda looked silly to me.

I just might stick with my base model bumper, and put the LSS fog lights in it. We'll see.

Yeah it probably does. I'm like you I hate almost all body mods because they're bulky and gaudy. Just remember there's no bracket at all for the fogs in the base model bumper. You're almost better off finding something aftermarket to get in there easier.

The xtreme tuner kits are not subtle. They do turn heads.
Btw, thanks for that link y3llowcav. I've never seen that one,only the silver one.
Where can i find a hood like that.The only ones i find look more like 2000 celica hoods,narrow opening,not wide like a that hood.

Compared to the drift, and all the other crazy looking ones, yes, the tuner bumper is very subtle, and clean.

As far as brackets, i'll probably end up just weld something up on my own.

Don't get me wrong., it's my favorite looking bodykit (onlyone) for the 03+
That's why i have one, still waiting to get more parts for build.
Maybe it's because every cav that has the xtreme tuner kit also is lowered and has the engine upgrades,aftermarket rims and tires to go with, that make it not to subtle.
But i wouldn't put that kit on unless i had all the extras.
Maybe just a lss body kit from a pick n pull,and cut out the front bracing. Thats subtle, just a little change.

02 LSS front conversion. IMO, that with the 03+ LSS sides and rear would be perfect.

Agreed. I think that's the best combo by far.
