I wish you had taken a video of the squirrels eating the rubber bumpers

|chim-chim7||UFO's are a good choice for replacement options. You can also get them with rubber insulators to keep from scratching the paint. I just got some UFO's and some mini UFO's to replace the windshield latch that will never get used.|

1) Where can you buy these online?
2) Are they ready to go out of the box? or do I need to sand & paint
(for a Black JK)
3) Can you buy the mini Vector UFOs that replace the footman loop on the hood of your JK
4) How do you get the footman loop off?

|LMH||Sounds like I should stay away from Nu Finish and putting peanut butter on my jeep. I think I will pee around it though to mark it. A bunch of people at work have been asking me, "Hey- is that your Jeep out there in the parking lot?" I've got my eye on them.....|

UPDATE: Peanut Butter is a temporary solution. The white film residue returns overnight.
Don't waste your time with peanut butter!!!
The best way to get Nu Finish Wax residue off the plastic parts on your JK is to order replacement new door handles, new rubber hood bumpers, new front & rear bumpers and new license plate bracket!!!

|armyjk||But, thanks - I've found replacement mopar rubber hood stops - so I'll try and pop them out tomorrow.|

The Jeep body guys showed me how to put them on, and it was really easy when I knocked one of mine off.
They are very simple design and have no mechanical pieces to unscrew.
They are a basic rubber plug with a knob on the end with a smaller diameter slot that the hood material fits in.
He used a little soapy water on the plug end and did a simple right-hand screw motion of about a 1/2 turn while pushing downward, to get it in.
Hasn't come out a 2nd time.
I'd think grab one firmly with your hand, turn sharply left while pulling upward should do it.
Or slather with more PB and let 'em munch away till it falls out....
And lay off the peanut butter app. PETA may be watching. Some squirrels may be allergic HAR!!!

|armyjk||Just gave 'em a big glob of pb in the grass to work on. A little bribe to stay away from my grille. If that doesn't work "I'm gonna catch it in my coat... And smack it with a hammer." Clark Griswold|

Or rat poison. Either or.

|0II1II0||No, no, no! I like the peeing around the Jeep idea! As always, pics or it didn't happen!|
|07-09-2012 03:55 PM|
|HAFICON||Just a suggestion rub a little a very light coat of turpentine on them, just enough to make them take the scent. They wont mess with it anymore.|
|07-09-2012 03:44 PM|
|kabory||remove your hood liner, nuts and bolts under there|
|07-09-2012 03:28 PM|
Always have this option instead.
