Sorry to bring back an aging thread, but I thought this was on topic:
A couple of people I showed this mod to think I'm crazy for wanting to do something like that to a very new and expensive vehicle.
(They do not understand obviously.)
It's the same thing that makes me take the same vehicle for joyrides through the pine barrens! It's not about the expense: It's about it being my (CENSORED) Jeep!
Anyhoo, my nephew is getting a Jeep when he gets home from his service overseas and told me I could have HIS OEM front bumper, because HE gets the Jeep thing, and has already ordered aftermarket bumpers for his!
So, win win is what I'm saying. I can carve mine up and hang his like a trophy in the shed against "future need".
