Flat Bumper end caps

I was wondering if anyone knew anywhere else to get these bumper endcaps?? I took off the stock milk jugs but don't really like the looks of the open ends of the bumpers. I saw a jeep at work today that has these caps on it, but I can't find anywhere else that has them so I can compare prices. Here is the link so you can see what I am talking about.

I tried looking at Quadratec and 4WD hardware, but didn't have any luck finding them. Those on Ebay use the factory bolts to hold them on but the ones at work used little plastic push in clips to hold them in, so I know someone else has them.

It's a woman, and that's the only thing that has been done to it, so I was kinda thinking it may be stock. It is probably an 06 X model.

Those caps came stock on '06 X's. I picked some up from the dealer before i went aftermarket bumpers. Use your original hardware.

Part numbers:

55078138AA front (x2)
55078139AA rear (x2)

The price seems to vary a great deal by dealer. I think I paid $30 for mine.

my 06 only had the flat ones up front. i took them off when i mounted my winch and had to outboard my off road lights. Cant remember what i did with them(pitched em i think) im about to pull my rear ones off because i saw a guy that did that and welded caps on along with 2 d ring mounts too on his stocker. the front bumper looks good with or without the caps. pull yours off and run em that way for a few days who knows you may like it that way and save you a few bucks.

Get them from the dealer, even at the highend of pricing it still would be cheaper than those on e-bay, I think I got all 4 from my dealer for around $20

Thanks everyone. I found them on a website for 2.01 each. the only catch was you had to order 20 dollars worth of stuff, but shipping was free. I ordered 3 sets and figure I will put the other 2 sets on ebay and sell them. But still 24 dollars was cheaper than what was on ebay if I don't do anything with the others.

I can't tell you about any kind of service or shipping speeds or anything, I just ordered them yesterday, But I have 2 full sets (since you have to spend 20 bucks) that I will take 11 bucks a piece for. That should cover shipping and what I paid for them. If interested let me know. thanks

ok, I will send ya pics, it looks tons better, kinda makes them look finished instead of like you just cut them off and left them, without all the work of fabricating ends.

I only bought the front ones since I already had the Jeeperman rear on order. But I only paid 2.40 each for them if I recall correctly. Gave them away to a person in my club for free when I got the Kilby front. Only because it would cost more to ship them then somebody could buy them for

Yeah I found out that was a rip off, that's why I didn't order them. If you read on down I found some from like a little over 8 bucks a set and am offering the spare 2 sets for sale for 11 bucks each to cover my price and shipping. JCS05Rubi has first dibs at 1 set if they want them.
