Ok, so started the install yesterday, half of the day I spent getting my side exit off, reinstalling my needswings/mopar combo. (Issues getting the wideband sensor out) I got this far. (See photos) My question now is how do I get the 3 nuts back on the fender/bumper on both sides... The space I used to remove them is now occupied by the diffuser. Do I remove the splash guard and access them that way?

Yes. It's tight but with extensions and potentially a swivel, you should be able to get them.

Edit: By splash guard, I'm assuming you mean the fender liner...

She's wide.

ok, got the bumper installed tonight. I have the mopar exhaust and let me tell you the fit is tight. but it will fit! see, the mopar tips are longer then the MPX's. in order to the bumper back on, i had to remove the styrofoam bumper guard for the rear crash bar, and i had to trim part of the inner lip around the exhaust cut out just to get the tips to pull through. oh, and just can't seem to get the passenger side fender liner to fit. will try again in the a.m. and take pictures. oh, and three worm clamps are necessary to get the exhaust to tuck up a little higher.

Ugh... $71.36 shipped. But at least they're ordered and I'll have them if I ever need them. Thanks for the heads up Hybrid.

Are you getting the whole diffuser done? Or just the block off plates?

I have a diffuser already from another maker, that is already anodized black with custom vents cut in it for me. Just need the plugs and hardware anodized blue.

Why do you think the Modern block off plates will match the cutouts exactly for your diffuser from another vendor? Just curious!

Mounting is Very similar and my diffuser has a smaller cutout in it because as I said it was custom made so the 'exhausts' cutouts are smaller on the diffuser. Should only need to drill different holes to mount them. I was going to make my own at some point but saw that MP was going to make more.

Is yours an RFR Diffuser?

Yes, without the cutouts for the exhaust, it comes all the way back to the bumper in those spots.
Is there a problem with it?

I didn't want to dump on this thread a picture of someone else's diffuser.
