New Bumper Old Parts

I am geting a new front and rear bumper. I am having it installed (no place to do work right now its cold out!). My question is should I keep the old bumpers and plastic Air dams? If I sell my jeep outright in the future then I have to pay 100% Sales tax on the new purchase. If I trade it in no way will I get the money back out of my Jeep add-ons.

I hate lugging around two bumpers for the next how many years.

If I want to trade it in and have the old bumpers I can swap them out and then sell them for $$.

There are tons of OEM bumpers for sale everywhere. You can always pick some up cheap if you ever need to put them back on.

If you have room in your place, keep them. If you have a smaller place or plan to move, craigslist the bumpers and place the proceeds into a Jeep modifications savings account .
