Here are some pictures of the JDM lightweight beam. I've been using it; no complaints (the car doesn't feel any lighter in the front end).

Stay away from the jdm beam. There's a reason why the cdn is so beefy..i found out the hard way...

I'm now using a hacked cdn beam. pretty much the whole bottom beam needs to be cut. Took me about 1/2 hr with a reciprocating saw

Plus it's free

Sorry, no pics I did it at work

Once you see how the stock one looks, you'll know what to do. The whole bottom piece comes off. You'll have to cut center/side/side since the mounting support is there. Make sure it clears the fogs lights tho before you mount (see how the jdm one looks?)..i didn't and wasn't thrilled taking everthing apart again to trim it
