How you make it fit? Just drill new holes? Not bad for a bumper upgrade. confusing when looking at it though haha never seen it done. Very unique

Well this is my dad's TJ, he really likes the look of the fog lights on the JK's and being that a JK was out of our price range, this seemed to be a good solution and a good project to take on.

since the JK bumper has front mount holes as opposed to the mount holes on the TJ. the stock bumper was left on and trimmed, and holes were drilled so that the bumper could just be bolted on, on top of the other one.

I like it, I bet it would look cool if you cut it to be a stubby

I really kind of like it. What modifications did you make to put it on?

It is a stubby, we just didn't cut the bumper all the way in. otherwise it would have been wider than the fenders.

like i said before there were really no modifications done to the JK bumper except the stubby end conversion kit. and it was put over the stock bumper which was cut and drilled so that this bumper could just be bolted on.

I like it but think it would look better with the center section painted black

That's what it would look like without the applique haha.

Though there is a JK at my local dealership that has a darker middle section, that would probably look better against the dark green

I was inspired to put a jk bumper on my tj too because of your post.

I was bored.
I took off the old tj bumper.
Made two brackets from 1/4" steel.
