Adding just the rear Appearance Bumper???

I'm wondering if anyone has just added the GTO stamped rear sport bumper to any 04's or 05's? I'm trying to figure out if the bottom trim flares by the wheel wells goes with the stock rocker pannels. Thanks

I'm not sure if I follow your question but you will need the rear facia panel to be able to install the gray GTO insert. I check this out when I was crawling around the salvage yard looking at some of the train wrecked 05 GTOs. The rear facia panel has some rivets that will have to be removed. Depending on how well the color match is, you may have some painting work to do also.

What i'm trying to do is put a sport appearance package rear bumper on an 04 goat. My question is, do the bottom flares of the bumper that flare near the wheel wells match the normal side skirts or by just putting the rear bumper on really makes it look funny with the all the other stock parts? I think that makes a little more sense...

Yes. The SAP rear fascia wheel arc are in the stock location. There are some screws that attach it to the inner wheel liner.

Ok again , what part of yes don't you understand? It attaches just like stock, in the stock location. it does not protrude any further out or hang any lower than the stock bumper fascia. And yes, I am talking about the SAP fascia. A fascia is GM speak for bumper cover. The front SAP piece is an attachment not a fascia.

The factory 05 and the SAP rear fascia are at the same location at the wheel wheel. They attach to the same holes in the wheelliner.

Yes, but the lines (ie. low like the rocker panel) are different in SAP bumper and a stock o4 bumper.
