Looks like I am going to have fun with those mounting brackets as well

How are you going to shorten your bumper shocks? cut and re-weld? back into a wall? lol....
Lol dude no way. I didn't want to say it but my passenger t50 bolt seized on me as well and ended up stripping. I actually removed the bumper cover by taking out all the push clips haha. Gonna have a shop get that bolt out for me tomorrow as well lol.

Yeah I'm gonna have the exhaust shop cut and reweld. Safer that way. Too many negative variables that can happen with backing into a wall lol.
