1BLKJP Yeah, I don't believe they have made any changes in how the bumpers mount to the frame between any of the years.

jeepthis Ok well I guess I will just keep it as a spare bumper! I didn't even think about it but will these 05 Rubi bumpers work on a 97 TJ Sport? If not, oh well, I already picked them up but I was just wondering.

The first time you run a strap through that D ring on your stock bummer someone is going to get hurt from the flinging debris. A Warn Rock Crawler is only a few hundred bucks and it will never let you down. It will also save your tub corners if you ever come off a shelf or ledge a little harder than planned.

For what that FREE Bumper is going to save you the results could be a great deal more expensive.

Modding a stock rear bumper

Is there anything I can do in the line of modding a stock rear bumper? I can get my hands on a free bumper but its about 35-40 minutes away. I wanted to put some d-rings on it and maybe trim it down some. Any advice would be helpful.
