    the 510's are like 4.5 inches i think. i got them because i was using the stock fog light brackets just modifying them and i wanted the lights to sit back in the holes a little like the stock ones. i think if you came up with your own brackets you could use the 6 inch ones, but yeah the 510's fit nice and snug in the factory brackets.

    I got my front bumper from Auto_Lighthouse on ebay, don't know if they have anymore or not. I got the rear from a body shop in texas, it was the only one they had. Front cost $130 and rear cost $150.

    I sanded down the bumpers to make them really rough and then used self etching primer, and after the first coat I sanded with a finer sand paper to make it more smooth, then I did another coat of the primer, and for the black paint I used this super high temp BBQ paint thats flat black, and I did 2 coats of that letting each coat dry completely before doing the next (only about 15 min) then I used matte clear coat to keep it flat black and I did 2 coats of that too.

    They are holding up really well so far, and they have been in the sun and rain a lot, I don know how you wash your truck but I just use soap and water and they held up nice in that too, I even did under my wheel wells and there's not a single chip under there either even after going to the desert and on dirt roads and stuff so I'm throughly happy with the outcome

    I love it, the 40 series is loud. I have 2 on my Stang as well. Great muffler. It really comes down to your sound preference since they all have different notes. Youtube is a good place to check different ones out.
