I say it maybe missing the top half is because as you can see, there are tabs on the end that indicate to me that something clamps to it.

The problem is that the ducts channel air up to the air filter on our original ducts....
BUT on the 1M ducts is only "HALF" of our original duct...

Do i need to cut the top half off the original duct and mold it to the 1M duct or what?

i appreciate it if THE TECH could chime in or ANYONE with this bumper installed could guide me

see pics

You wouldn't happen to know the part numbers for the two ducts you purchased would you? One of my ducts was cut too much so I would like to replace it.

Here's mine:
