Question ya'll, I have a 1992 Galant VR-4 and it's usdm. If I wanted to get the JDM bumper which I found, what would I need to switch it? do I need different brackets to hold it? or will they hold the same with the same clips?

Yes you need the JDM brackets and crash bar.

I think Juan Nava had some of the Curtis jdm brackets.
Pretty sure those sold off as soon as he listed them.

But yeah, you need the L brackets and make sure the bumper is complete and not missing any piece of the skeleton. You will need to remove your usdm fogs as well and splice in the jdm fogs if it comes with them.

Exactly. I personally got one of Curtis's L brackets. They were perfect for my install. Gave me a chance to mount my FMIC much better than it ever was. See my av.
