Default Front Bumper Ideas For 04

I'm looking to modify my front bumper from stock, whether it be adding a lip or replacing the bumper as a whole. I haven't yet lowered my car, unless I don't find a solution with the bumper. The roads around where I live don't permit a super low front end, but I still want lower clearance than what the stock bumper has to offer.

What bumpers / lips would recommend? Pictures would be great.

There is only one lip for the 04 bumpers and thats Stillen @Deadbolt is a great lip maker and might be in it to making a better one for 04! But other than that EZKoncepts makes a Hybrid bumper that fits an 04 but looks like an 07-08 those are most likely your options unless you are a handy fiberglass maker

Not a fan of the Stillen lip, does the 6.5 gen bumper have less clearance than the 04 bumper?

Yeah most people arent so they go the other way ummm i dont think it does but you have the option to put a lip a better looking one. Its either the hybrid or doing the whole swap hood headlights and bumper which in my opinion its cheaper with the hybrid plus you get the fogs as well

The next project I have is the 07-08 lip fitted to 04-06. I'll use a piece off my first batch to see how I can fit it properly.

I have a question. If I do the whole swap hood headlights and bumper on my 05 Maxima, would it be a direct fit or do I have to do some customizing. And is there a forum on this with pics

Awesome. Thanks a lot. I been wanting to do this but I didn't know if it'll be a direct fit. And I would have to install the front all at once to be a direct fit right. with the light's, hood, and bumper.

If you make a sick lip for the 04's I'll be one of the first guys to order one. I need something to make my car look a little aggressive in the front. PLEASE MAKE ONE!!!
