    I'm looking to buy a strut tower bar that fits a 2017 Prime - who sells one?

    You could also look for the Gen 4 as the width between the front strut towers should be identical.

    If @HAWAIIANBUILT is still around, he could point you to a place.

    I emailed Cusco and they said it is difficult to put a strut tower bar on because of minimal amount of room

    Those look more like body braces.

    You can go with [email protected] stabiliser bars if you want bracing (It's underbody braces) instead of tower braces.

    I have a 2019 non-Prime. I have the Cusco "strut" bar. I don't know why they call it that since it doesn't connect to the struts at all. If you want to get a real strut bar, I believe only Hardrace makes one. I have the Hardrace strut bar on my car as well (ignore the Cusco logos on the upper and lower bar. Had extra stickers and threw them on). Bottom brace is a Hardrace radiator brace 20200207_183255.jpeg 20200207_183111.jpeg

    no one sells one.
    the mounting points are physically there but there are some major differences between the headlight assembly locations.
    I purchased a set for the non prime model and had to cut and reweld the brackets as well as trim them to fit under the LED headlights.

    That radiator and upper brace make any difference?
