They did not. What you see on YJs is all different kinds of aftermarket products.

Ok that's what I was talking about then haha, I'm also assuming you have the weird shaped holder next to the rear right light? Know what that is?

a bumperette is just a band of steel bolted on the back designed to act as a "crush zone" in an impact... cheap, simple, easy to replace, and can absorb a fair amount of energy.

maybe I oughtta fab some up for my JK

bumperettes are just a hoop, no bottom, and the size won't match up...

if jerry cans fit in yours, and they have a bottom plate, they're probably jerry can holders mounted where the bumperettes normally are
