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.

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.
I've taken a 12 speed 45 foot tour bus through SF. I know. Lol get a suspension lift NOT body.

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).
10-08-2011 08:38 PM
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
Hammond_Egger Looks like your jeep has braces
I would try to sell them first, you never know!
10-08-2011 01:16 PM
Committee-X Sweet thank you! Will make a trip to home depot soon.

I got a $6 can at Home Depot... also sold on Amazon, at Ace Hardware and Summit Racing.

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

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....
I did my bumpers in the same stiff great product .

I drove by another jeep owner who was about to wave but I noticed he slowly retract his hand as I approach closer. Stupid corny shiny pos bumpers!

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.
