Or if you're up for a little metal work, get a couple of little pieces of 16 gauge metal and make your own. This is how I did mine when I first got my Jeep.

Thanks, it's long gone now. I didn't know how to weld back then so I just cut the bumper at an angle with a sawzall, cut and bent the end caps, and took it down to the muffler shop where they welded them on for me. Then just ground them down with a sander and painted with rattle can. I think I had a total of $50 in it, and that was for the welding.

I removed all my jugs in February, replaced with mopar end caps. I found that salt/ice and snow would get pushed up past the liner because of the rear milk jugs so I needed to do something before the problem got worse.

If you dont wanna put a lot of money into it then just get a set of cheap end caps from ebay.

I reused the hardware from the milk jugs on mine...



I think I paid less than $25 for the set of 4.

You could always just take the bumper off. It Looks kinda nice IMO.

I painted them and put them back on. It makes the rear look complete, so until I buy a rear bumper, they'll stay.

Haha yeah it does a little bit. I had it like this for a week or so when I was preparing to install my tire carrier and new rear bumper. Before that I used the end caps on the stock bumper.
