Yeah I know another guy here that installed it without pulling the bumper also. However, I wanted to 1000% completely hide the entire kit, no wires, no ballasts, igniters, nothing at all shows from inside the hood or under the truck. Hell, even if you pull the bumper, it's hard to tell anything aftermarket was added at all. I'm not a fan of zip tie-ing components to the truck, etc. So, I figured I'd just be safe and pull the bumper. That's not to say it cant be done WITHOUT pulling it.
Also, I wanted to pull the headlights as I tried to bake them to paint the bezels black. Bumper has to come off for that. However, these headlights lights don't come apart.
