Looking for bumper help

When I take the stock bumper off, what am I going to see underneath? Am I going to need to buy something beyond just the bumper I'm planning to buy?

I'm planning on buying the one below, but I don't want to end up with just the tube part and then need to buy additional stuff just to mount it. I asked a similar question yesterday but didn't get much in the way of responses so I'm going to give this another whirl.

No problems at all.

If you look at the pic of your new one you will see 8 bolts on it (4 on each side).

These bolts run through to the existing plate that sits across the front of the chassis rails and is the same way/location that the stock plastic bumper is mounted to.

You will notice that the lower plastic splash guard is no longer fitted though, leaving the underneath much more open. Most like it like that and leave it that way.

I have that exact same bumper, only added d-rings. It's a piece of cake to install. Also got the Olympic rear bumper but haven't had the time to install it yet.
