you don't need drill holes. The lip should bolt up to OEM mounting points and have double-sided adhesive to stick it on as well.

Use factory bolts already installed In lower bumper (4 bolts)

- unscrew and reapply with Lip on

- I didn't use sticky 3M tape ...I have had a minor scratch on the front bumper I needed repainting, so I had to take the lip, and 3M ( front bumper 3M ) off.

Would have been a bitch with the sticky tape applied.

No issues with vibs at high speed.

You could apply a bead of removable silicone of you want instead - that way you could sell it later if parting out the truck

Where did you buy the silicone? Also, where exactly did you apply it?
