    This is the set up as it was originally intended back in 2010.

    Obviously later mules for calibration purposes were very stealth and replicate the kit as we see today from just about everyone.

    The front bar is actually a modified std bar, they had a few.

    The intercooler vents are a separate form that fits into the trimmed out section where the driving lights went trimmed out along the accent line.

    I understand that Norm, but what I don't understand is how does someone get this prototype bar from Ford development team then resells it for a profit?

    The company that produced the front bars had excess, they own them. They sell them on EBay.
