Installation Instructions for LEX-RBC-GN: Grand National Rear Bumper Cover


We have made the installation of your Rear Bumper Cover as simple as possible, yet we advise that you read the entire instructions CAREFULLY.  Take your time and apply some craftsmanship.  The end results will be worth the effort!

Place both bumper cover and rear quarter panels on the ground, as they will be installed on vehicle.  Line up rear quarter panels against cover so they align properly.  Drill a 1/4” hole from rear quarter into cover, top and bottom for both sides.  Attach rear quarters to cover with 3/4” hex bolts, washers and hex nuts.

Next, remove taillights from inside trunk.  Unscrew pigtail from taillights.  Remove bumper (4 bolts per bumper shock).  Remove chrome bumper from inner bumper and reinstall inner bumper, loosely.  NOTE: Depending on thickness of cover, you may have trim off 1” from inner bumper at top outside corners.

Remove license plate and housing by pulling out on license plate and removing two 10mm hex screws.  Remove both rubber fillers from rear of vehicle, (keep these nuts as they will be used to secure bumper cover).  Drill marked holes in sides of bumper cover, large enough for adjustment.  When installing cover, lift from back bottom of cover, leaving rear quarters angled toward the ground so quarters will slide up inside the rear wheel well.  Place cover over inner bumper as it will be installed.  Secure with hex nuts that were used to secure rubber fillers.  With cover installed, drill 1/4” holes to reinstall license plate and secure with factory hex screw.

With quarter panels inside rear wheel well, drill and install 3/4” sheet metal screw.  Pull slightly out at bottom center of rear quarter and install final 3/4” sheet metal screw.

If exhaust pipe is covered by bumper cover, you can (1) cut out cover or quarters to accept exhaust, (2) install exhaust extension, so exhaust will hang down lower, or (3) cut exhaust tip back far enough to install exhaust tip turn-downs.
