Can anyone confirm this change?
No Unfortunately it is not. It is the Euro. spec. bumper and dealers here know nothing about it.
To bad, I would like to buy one.
If anyone knows a way please let me know.
Thanks

I actually liked this bumper a lot better than the US version.. until I saw it from a side view.

Those eurobumpers remind me of the fugly front bumper on my '06 Dakota- that thing stuck out about 6 inches too far for my taste. Maybe the same Chrysler designer drew them both up.

I believe the bumpers were designed just to pass the safety regulation and test in the stock form. If you're not going seroius offroad, the apporach angle isn't a matter. And if you're, you're going to change that plastic thing anyway.

I wanted one too, but this is the European spec bumper only and is Not available in the US, is what I found out during my search.

What I ended up doing was finding some really nice, splash guards/mud flaps. I had to measure the inside of the front fenders and find a quality flap and texture that I liked, it took some looking.
I then mounted them to the front bumper and front fenders, this covered up the ugly gap between the fender and bumper and keeps the backwards splash off the front bumper, from the front tires. They go inside the front fenders so all edges are covered up, looks nice.

You can see better pictures of my Jeep at 4 wheel.com its under rides on the first page. I havent kept up here.

Your only other option is to spend $1,200.00 for AEV Steel bumper. Yes their are other bumpers and if you want a hard core winch type steel bumper, you have many choices. Most guys do, but some of us want something more subtle. No offense to anyone, so no negative mail please, thats why I am not on here anymore very much.
