I don't see why not. Looks like you'll still need to drill a 3/4" hole in the bumper so that doesn't leave much "wiggle" room since the exposed part of the latch you want to use is only 1".....but if you do it right, you won't need any wiggle room.

With these installed what can you leave off in terms of the original fasteners?

I don't have any sag (yet) but if these make it faster/easier to get the bumper off and on I might as well do it now...going to take it off to respray my lip anyway ><

How many times removing the bumper does it generally take before it starts to sag? Only had mine off once so far and it still looks good, wondering if I should plan on getting something like this installed the next time it comes off or if I don't need to worry about it yet.

I don't think you can get away with leaving any of the stock clips or screws out without things flopping around or creating yet another gap.

The only reason I installed these was to remove the notorious gap. They do not make it faster or easier to remove the bumper in any way. If you don't have the gap, I wouldn't install them.

Thanks Bird. Bummer...ah well :/
I'll probably need them eventually but I guess I'll sit on it for now.

That works too. (Just don't go 1 step too far!) Sharp bits are the real key to success, no matter which type you choose to use.

Thats a good point, don't use a drill without variable speed. I used my cordless drill on slow speed 1 with a new bit. It was easy to drill the hole to the correct step.
