Default TTE replica lip first impressions.....

Ok, so since noone wants to get rid of their authentic TTE lips, and after months of searching for a used one online, I finally decided screw it and ordered the replica VIS version. Got it in the mail today, and quality is pretty damn good. Ive ordered from VIS before, and quality was never an issue. I will do a test fit to see how good the fitment is. Overall I am pretty impressed, and while it isnt urethane like the TTE lip is, it does seem to be stronger than other fiberglass pieces I have owned in the past. I'll post a after test fitment pic later.

i picked up one also. quality is good, but i had a hard time getting it to stick. ended up using 3m tape, epoxy, and screws. to the op, you will need to use screws. i picked up mines local for 140 new, i think that was reasonable.

For around $170, this doesn't seem to be a bad choice.

Google "VIS".. they sell that replica there..good luck with fitment though. Seems hit or miss with them ..


sometimes it's better to wait and get the good stuff instead of rushing it, ya know what i mean?.. i want one too but not too sure about the replicas. From experience i would rather wait and get the good stuff instead.

The reason why people are wanting the replica , is the tte is too hard to get .
