Installed '08 bumper on my '03

My stock, chrome, bumper had an odd shape to it, i guess previous owner tweaked it somehow and I'm trying out the color matched look ... so i picked this bumper up from a local forum member (AFWheels) and had it repainted (it had some scuff marks from transporting it) the next day. Got some time to install it this weekend... so here's come camera phone pics while i was working on it...

Stock bumper removed, tailpipe hanging kinda low.. wires a mess.. cleaned all that up a bit...

08 bumper installed plate lights and trailer wiring dangling below.. tailpipe tightened up...

With the plate lights installed, gonna have to figure something out for the trailer wiring (i want to flush mount it in by where the plate is... so ill probably do that next weekend..) I love the way it looks with the Recon LED mini lightbar here...

Gotta pick up the reverse sensors from him some time this week and get those installed and run wires so i can actually use them.. anyone know what part number i need for the unit that the sensors plug into ??

Oh, and I figured out why the 2008's have that recessed area at the bottom where it says "SUPER DUTY" across the back of the tailgate... its to clear the top of the bumper, it touches my '03 tailgate when i have the gate down....

anyone selling a Dark Shadow Grey 2008 tailgate ?
