I went with these, more pricey than Ace, but I like the look.

Rather than plugging up the "bumper" holes, I did this instead:

Yep, the bumper holes are 1/2" - but what about the footman loop holes???
I found some of the same plugs that KYJK used at work to lose the bumpers and like the clean look (plus the texture almost matches my Mopar hood decal perfectly), so I think it's time to lose the loop too - just need to know the hole diameter....

I used a bit of a different party, similar look though.

I honestly think the footman loops and the bumpers are part of what give a wrangler its character. To me, it gives a rugged off road look.
What do you guys do with the footman loop on the windshield frame inside the jeep? I like to hang crap off mine.

|Strokerswild||What's the actual hole diameter for the footman loop?|

Most auto parts stores have a wide selection of styles and sizes of push in plugs also.

I would rather go down your route but I can't find these plugs anywhere.

Sorry ... forgot to add:
If you're anal like me ... the above pictured push tabs I used to fill the Footman Loop holes didn't bite quite tight enough, for my liking, so I cut my Pep Boys rewards card into little shims (see photo below) and drilled a hole in the middle and shoved them through the tip of the tab and up against the backside of the hood...which pulled the head of the push tab nice and tight against the topside of the hood.

For the non-UFO route, like me:
The Bumpstop holes are 1/2" Hillman PVC Hole Plugs perfect fit.
ACE or Lowes has them. The Home Depot near me was the only store in town that did not have them, according to their computer.
OK...the tricky part about the Footman Loop holes is that the hole is recessed due to the brace which runs across the underside of the hood. I racked my brain to figure this one out, however I noticed the push tabs which secure the shroud over the radiator looked like a good fit for the hole and also to fill the recessed area (see the photo and you'll understand what I mean). So, I went to ACE and bought a similar push tab just a little shorter so it doesn't over penetrate into the hood insulation. Sorry...I didn't notice the size push tab

|Strokerswild||What size are the plugs? Any more info?|

I'm a fan of this mod too. I installed the UFOs in place of the loop and rubber bumpers.

Footmans Loop and Windshield Bumpstop Removal
Maybe this is an unconventional "mod," but I really have no use for the windshield bumpstops and footmans loop on the hood. To me, they are just an obstacle for washing, drying, and waxing ... I know..I know.. things that Jeeps are not designed for
I went to Ace Hardware and bought some PVC Hillman plugs ... too easy
