Rubber Bumper thingies

Those 2 rubber bumper inserts on the front bumper. Does anyone know how to replace them? Gotta take the whole bumper off?

BTW, Huge thanks for Unlimited for getting those out to me cheap, and a big thanks to those of you who also offered after he sent them.

I would imagine that they are bolted on from the backside. Go take a look.

Hey buddy, I actually have those rubber bumperettes that attach to the front of the bumper. I no longer need them. They are in good condition. If you are willing to pay a little for shipping, I'll be happy to send them to me. PM me at your convienance.

Thanks again Vin211, but Unlimited already sent me some from Cali thats not a bad oidea range, but the hooks on the bumper are fine for me, besides, I can always do the D ring mod there. Id rather just put the bumperettes back in. Mine are all jacked from bottoming out on a road... long story.

those rubber pads have saved my jeep a few times (the backend of a dodge durango once, guy backed into me).. plus ive used my jeep to push peoples cars when they died.. kept from scratching their cars..

now that i got my brushguard they wont serve a purpose but i still like the look lol

Ya, I just like to have my vehicle.. "right" .. untill its paid off, or close to it, just incase. Mine are all tore up. Just figured if I could get a cheap pair, why not just swap them real quick? Unlimited and a few others chimed up, sent me out a pair for a price I couldn't refuse, and my Jeep is nice again
