The one on the left is the temp sensor for the heated mirrors. It's supposed to sit in the brake duct, but most people lose the ducts, so it just hangs there. You can tuck it away wherever.

Who's the seller for that bumper? Doesn't say in the pics you posted and I've been trying to find it on eBay.

Thanks Z,
anyone who buys this kit make sure you have all the hardware for everything, luckily I kept my ripped up bumper bc I needed a lot of ends and outs for the fog lights and inner mounts, still even after swapping some pcs over it only took about an hour to install

Damn it!! Rim is bent but I have an extra front wheel -it's just not painted and polished.... Any one have any advice on how to go about painting the other?

Edit: once we took the blown tire off the bead area was fine so we went ahead and put the new tire on. Just got back from a nice hwy drive and no shakes or shimmies, we left the spare tire off the rim so I can get it prepped and painted black ( matching spare) i'll prob use the newly painted polished one and use the slightly dented as the spare..,.
Btw Thanks Josh for the wheel
