    Seems like there are quite a few of us interested in the rear swap. Maybe having enough of us interested would make Sewell come up with something faster?

    Aye I should have gone ahead and did it myself. Can't seem to get a definite answer from anyone so I already bought a Tom's rear lip instead. Great for you though, Looks really nice, good job.

    According to someone at Sewell, the rear bumper will NOT fit.
    I am probably going to buy the canadian f sport one.


    edit:

    Looks like it will fit!
    Thanks a lot for the updates everyone!!

    Answer: Yes and yes. Just put on the 2014 rear bumper.

    After:
    Brilliant work! Would you mind letting us know where did you buy the latest bumper, and how much did it end up costing you? Thanks.

    Where are you getting the bumper from? I didn't know there's a Canadian f-sport style rear bumper. Not been on the loop for a while I guess. How much does it cost here vs getting one from the US?

    Updated OP with more details. Expensive upgrade (~$750), but worth it to me to get rid of that tailbone/*** of a bumper I had before.

    Indeed. They told me the same a few times before I just went ahead and took the gamble. Due to a few minor changes between attachment points under the bumper Sewell will never say the bumpers are compatible, but as you can see, the bumpers are interchangeable. I doubt Sewell will ever make a "kit" like they did with the front bumper because they would have to have Lexus make modified 2014 rear bumpers to correct those attachment points. As I put in my OP, the attachment points incompatibility can be corrected and secured.

    Indeed the tailbone gets on my nerves as well. Never understood who in their right mind would tailbone in a bumper design.

    Do you have any pictures for your installation by any chance? Seems easy install though from your revised original post.
