Cheap way to hide BL gaps

I've got a 2" BL (was on there when i bought it) on my TJ. I was wondering if anyone has any good cheap ideas on how to hide the gaps that i have on my front and rear bumpers? Any pics would be helpful.

Cheapest way would be to remove the 2" BL. (Cost of some shorter bolts)

I've seen people use vinyl/rubber wall base or trimmed carpet runner.

Companies sell body lift gap guards. I "topeka'd" (google'd) one and found them all over the place. Around $75 if that's not too expensive for you.
At some point during jeep ownership, you will BUST A NUT!!!

For the cost of that, you could swap the 2'' for a 1'' and be good.
