Default Rumion Rear Bumper and Tail Lights Installl

Ok guys we just did Hawaii's First Rumion rear bumper/ tail lights conversion. to do this right you need the tail ights becuase the bumpers are shaped differantly..

The Mod is farely easy on a scale of 1 to 10 i give it a 5..

Here it is freah of the boat from Japan!


First thing to do is to take out the OEM tail lights..


After that remove all bolts and clips..


Inside the fender well got 2 like this. there is one more on the bottom side under the wheel well andmake sure you unplug the rev light wire


Than you pop the bumper off.. it uses clips so you might have to pull on it rom teh fender well outward..


Next you will have to remove the USDM bumper support.. becuase the JDM bumper is shorter.


This is the US bumper notice how my phone sits on top the entire bumper.


This is the Japan Bumper notice how my phone hangs off now its about 2 to 3 in shorter.



Next you have to install the refelctors .. the japan lights dont have the reflectors in the lights and lke most new cars now day the reflectors are in the bumpers instead of the lights.

Thanks you just rev the order and install the new bumper


Now you have to install the japan lights

Notice the plug on the left is from the japan light.. it is wider.. the one of the right is the US plug.. what you have to do is tranfer the plug.. I optied not to cut any wires.. and use any connectors to achive a factory look.. I dont beleive in butchering wires if i dont have to.. that called attention to detail and at eight08customs that is was we do best.


Notice the left light has 3 bulbs becuase it has the Rev lights.. and right has 2 and a smaller plug US.. we have to tranfoer the US plug to the Japan harness. you have to use the japan harness becuase the us bulb holders wont fit in the japan lights


Japan plug up close


US plug up Close


to transfer the harness to the US plug you have to use a smallpic to open the clip that holds the pins in the plug.. make sure you do this one by one.. and tranfer them.. note.. the brake and runnignlights are flipped so you have to make sure you flip those wires ..i forget what color theywas..
here it is done.. and all yo have is one wire for the rev lights .. all you have to do is tap into the rev wire and add 2 wires one to left one to the right.. the ground is already connected in the harness.




and there you have it..

SWEET, thanks for the details. I should have you guys done it for me, and it should help whoever wants to do the same thing in the future. One question, do you have to paint the Japanese bumper?

Thanks!

That looks really nice. The bumper is clean and sleek and I am so tired of my solid red tails. Hubby is getting ready to add smoke to the ones on my car and the ones on his truck. That should help a little. Thanks for posting.

Umm . . .
I just noticed something that should be noted.
The plastic part is a bumper cover.
The "USDM bumper support" is the ACTUAL bumper itself. THAT is what protects the vehicle and passengers in the event of a rear impact.
I thought it was simply a cover swap, rather than a completely different bumper under the xB and Rumion rumps.
As much as I love the clean and non-offset-reverse-light are and was thinking long-term of getting it.
BUT, without a JDM bumper that fits under the bumper cover is a big turn off for me, as rear impact is important with my kids in the back seat.

THE JDM support doesnt do much.. it just sits flat onto the body of the car.. upon impact there is no extra support like the USDM version.. thats the reason our bumpers are larger..

you can modify the USDM support by taking off the extended mounting points which pushes out out bumpers .. just re drill the holes and there you have it..

We ddint do it becuase if someones going to slam into the back you your car.. your screwed either way.. even if you had the support on it wont do much becuase its monted right on the body square..
