No you dont, you just need the rebar ($125 new) for safety reasons, and the later style turn signals (altho the old ones can be adaptet to fit).

No, you need just the rebar. You don't need the bumper. A valence is the portion below the bumper, which has the air dam and fog lights integrated.

the rebar is the smaller bumper? or is it what is under the plastic bumper? i want to do this also. does the rear work like the front, i heard that the fit is not the same. thanks for the help.

It's what's behind the bumper cover... It's there just incase you have a low speed crash..... and I guess you need it to put on the later bumpers..

This is the bumper cover.

make sure the rebar is 06/88+ Because prior to 6/88 they still had aluminum bumpers.*th-up*
