you could but it wouldn't look right. plus for that price i would just go out and buy the whole front end of a SHO. plus its only primed. i can almost guarantee that if you were to visit your local junkyard you could probably end up with the whole front end for under 200.

I thought about this myself and actually did some research, but found that the valance wouldn't bolt up to the bottom of the stock bumper without modification. After that, you run the risk of it looking ugly. Keep us informed though.

I think spyguy has the most experience with the slo/sho valance issues. I think he was having problems because the sho bumper has like 3 pieces and he didn't get them all when he ordered his sho bumper. You should ask him.

Don't know if this will help or not, but I seem to have the SHO front end on my SLO.

I don't have any pictures without the lights on right now, so if you would like to see the bumper without the lights on let me know.

it's not the whole bumper, that's the thing... I'd just like to find one in a yard somewhere and add it to the bottom

you need to have a sho bumper and valance to complete the setup...you can not attach a sho valance to the slo bumper.

you will also need the adapter that connects the rock shield to the bumper as the sho bumper is lower and longer than the slo bumper.

Yeah, don't I wish. Ask Ashley and Bob about finding a bumper cover for Little Red Bull, and the prices we were quoted from junkyards from NYC to RI. :rolleyes:
