|KidRock171||Looks great! I hate tube bumpers. But blk is the new pink. Much better. When you get a new bump. Look at the bestop. It's my personal favorite. A little pricey though.|

|Committee-X||Lol, those photos with the steep neighborhood were taken where the previous owner lived (san francisco). Driving in that city can be tense with a 5-speed. Anyhoo, since then I had a little bit of work to fix up and get the Jeep in good running order. Just now I'm starting to get to the fun stuffs: after market sound system, wheels etc. Hopefully by next year when I am less broke I can get maybe a 2-3 in lift, new tires, and new bumper. But for now I'm pretty happy with how it is.|

|topher38||My personal opinion the second photo is pretty sweet with the sun in it. If only there were trees instead of a building and trail instead of pavement|

|jkaufman_95||The hill you live on looks like the one my sister does (w. Hollywood) make sure the parking brake works! Lol seriously. Do something quick. Those are terrible. Nevermind. Read on. See you did! Looks good! New ion alloy wheels too eh?|

|Committee-X||So far it seems to stick well, as long as you do multiple thick coatings. Although if I were to run a blade through the surface I will have no problem slicing and peeling off the whole thing. So for better adhesive, definitely would not hurt to do a little sanding.|

|NoWayOut_TJ||Looks much better!, did it seem to stick well to the chrome without scuffing them up?|

|Committee-X||Updates: Plasti dipped those bumpers. Not too shabby huh for a $21 (3 cans).|

|mudslinger5000||i used plasti dip on my headlight bezels. i painted them two years ago and they havent chipped or cracked, its awesome stuff!|

|Kevbz||I have black tube bumpers i dont like, not as wrap around as yours though. i've thought about shortening them with a sawzall or hacksaw to show more front wheel...you can reuse the caps off the part you removed if it has them|
|10-08-2011 07:37 PM|
Looks like your jeep has braces
I would try to sell them first, you never know!

|Committee-X||Sweet thank you! Will make a trip to home depot soon.|
|10-08-2011 01:03 PM|
Just clean them really good. even light coats about 30 minutes between coats.... 4-5 coats over chrome. DONT TRY TO COVER CHROME IN ONE COAT! Aint gonna happen. PATIENCE! Grab 2-3 cans for both front and rear bumpers

|MikeMTJ||Take em off and sell them on Craigslist. Someone will buy them.|
|10-08-2011 12:55 PM|
Anyhoo, TnDz TJ, Ill definitely check those plasti dip as a temporary remedy. Anything that takes the sanding, priming step out of the process is a plus. Where did you buy these cans?

|Jerry Bransford||I dunno what those bumpers are either but I agree with you, they sure are an ugly eyesore!|
|10-08-2011 12:30 PM|
If you can't afford to replace them, just coat them. I wouldn't scuff them. reason why? When you sell them, you can have the option given to the potential buyer of black or chrome.
I suggest Plasti-Dip. It's a plasticized/rubber coating that you can remove if you want.
I used this on my NON-SCUFFED chrome grille of my 07 Jetta with no chipping or pealing in over 8000 miles of highway use.
This stuff rocks! I did my bumpers, too (on the Jeep)
Here is a guy that did his entire car....

Can you tell me what bumpers are these?
Hey folks, so I picked up this tj with chrome (or stainless steel) bumpers that I cannot stand. They are such an eyesore. Can you tell me what kind of bumpers they are, make, chrome or stainless steel? I'm planning to roughing them up and use matte black bedlining on them...or should I just scrap them and look for some used oem bumpers. I don't have a budget for a better offroad bumpers at the moment.
Please bare with this stock jeep photos. Currently in the process of replacing wheels and installing lift.
