Support bars under the hood

I just recently purchased an 06 LJ and noticed that the previous owner removed the two support bars under the hood that span from the grill back to the firewall, should these bars be back in there or is it common to take them out?

It's not common to take them out as far as I know. I'd replace them. You can buy some off of ebay for ~$30 (may not include hardware): TJ Grill Radiator Support Rod | eBay

Those support rods need to be there, replace 'em.
When you have a choice, buy American.

X2 get a new set, they make look small and pointless but they support the whole top of your grille and keep it rigid
