Is this a stubbied stock bumper?

I'm assuming it is... but the end caps are throwing me. It looks too good to be a cut down bumper.

Looks like it is - using the VDP stubby kit

Whoever did it, I like where their head was at with the cut down and the bull bar; Bravo!

Not to hijack, but what brand and how is that bull bar attached? If I could find these parts that is the exact look that I want.

It is an Off Camber bull bar. Installs with brackets to the frame where the bumper bolts on. Not too difficult...I have two IPF 968's fog lights on mine, looks sweet!

Thanks Charlie!! Should have known quadratec would have had this. Do you agree with the above post that he also used a VDP bumper kit as well? I sent him a PM asking for details but haven't heard back yet.

Thanks again..

Those are the VDP 31550 end caps.

I like the Rough Country end caps better, they have more of a square look!

Are the both brands plastic? The RC's look like they could be metal.

Shop around for the bull bar, you can always beat QT's price!

Rough Country is metal and VDP is plastic. Both are easy to mount.

That's exactly what I told him..haha, but I have a black Mojave so it wouldn't be quite the same. Should still look good though.

I too love the stance and simplistic look without being over the top. Just my style -

I may look into the RC caps too..

I liked the rc end caps better too so I went with em - less than a year & they're all rusted at the welds. I don't care a whole lot because I'll just touch them up & they're only temporary till I have the jing for the front bumper - but it still kind of annoys me. Anyone elses all rusted?

mine are over a year old and have 26000 miles on them and still not a spot of rust on them, I was just looking them over really good today. I wish I could say the same for the rest. lol.

Good to hear! I received a pair of these for Christmas, and have yet to install them. Hopefully this week.

I've looked around and can't seem to find a much better price. Do you have any hints on where to look? PM me if you would rather. Thanks for your comment on the bull bar too - I didn't notice you had replied as well as Charlie. Didn't intentionally leave ya out of the Thanks...

Sharp looking DUNE!!! I sooooo wish I could have found a Dune (or as they called it back in 2011 Sahara Tan) Mojave when I found mine.
I absolutely LOVE that color...

The Camber bars size is what sets it off. I don't think it would look as good with the stock bumper and a thinner bull bar.

Anyone see the new vdp fill width high clearance stock bumper end caps? Vdp doesn't have them on their site but quadratec shows them in their recent catalog.
