As a tag-along question....is there any reason to keep those little rubber-baby-buggy-bumper tips on the bumper?

I wanna take mine off and toss 'em and just leave the metal bumper, but I figured the engineers put em there for a reason.

Thoughts?

I'll confirm it's a T-30. I've been removing and repainting all of mine on the TJ.

Yeah, It's a T30. I just bought a whole set of heads, because you can take literally everything apart on a Jeep with a torx. Probably because most people don't carry torx screwdrivers around? I don't know...

If you're talking about the ones on the front of the bumper, actually they're there to protect the bumper. The ones one the end are to protect the fenders.
