I really like the Auburn. If I had gotten a Summit I would have gotten that for sure.

Re: Wheel lock question

You're misunderstanding me. They didn't come with wheel locks at all...not just that they didn't come with adapter keys. All the log nuts are normal lug nuts.

Bumpers are reprinted every day. Get it done by somebody good and it will be good as new, match perfectly, and last for the life of the vehicle.
