Why??

Why would anyone put a Jk bumper on a TJ? It makes no sence what so ever
It degrades the TJ

Jeeps are all about mix and match. Bigger axles tires engines, all are typical jeep upgrades why not a bumper?

The JK bumper does make the TJ a little less offroad capable, but I think they look good - and I'm sure the people that do this feel the same way.

I have JK turn signals in the grill of my TJ.
I could care less if anybody does not like them.

Same reason for most everything else we do. Because we felt like it. I don't see the sense in purposely driving through the roughest path to get from point A to point B. I understand lots of people like to do it, and more power to them. I wouldn't call it silly or stupid, it's just not my style.

If I had to choose between the stock TJ or stock JK bumper i'd pick the JK bumper everytime. I'm not really a fan of either and replacing my stock JK bumper but it's a hell of a lot better looking than the stock TJ bumper. Milk jugs? Really?? lol

I'm with you. It's our jeeps to style as we see fit. I love to see people being innovative and you did just that.

I think his JK bumper looks a whole lot better than the stock TJ bumpers, but let's not point out what we don't like about other peoples Jeeps.

That's why, it doesn't matter if you like it, no one is asking you to do it, I dislike the look of the Jeeps you see in the islands that people have lowered and Xenon'd out, but to each their own.
