|1EYEDJACK||FYI. After standing on the bumper creating the crease, I took it to the dealership. Service Manager is a big Jeep guy - shook his head and had it replaced for me. Front bumper seems more stable but will be upgrading soon!!!|

|daggo66||Thanks. It's a Rugged Ridge that I got from Quadratec for $299. I also just got a Rugged Ridge tow hook that I am putting on the front frame tomorrow to make up for losing the OEM tow hooks.|

Nice lookin' front bumper! How much did it run you, and where did you buy it? Is the rear bumper a Tube Bumper too?

The OE bumpers are carved from hard cheese.

|daggo66||You can easily pop that out by removing the bumper.|

I know of every scrape, scratch and dent that happens when I go trail riding, for the life of me I can not figure out when I got this one.

|Badfish||i think there is something wrong with your bumber. my friend is more than 190lbs and he has to use my rear bumber to get into the back seat. he doesnt really fit in the passenger door because the seat doesnt slide forward enough. ive watched him get in and out of my jeep a bunch and every time there is a lot of flex in the plastic bumper but no creases or dents. just my 2 cents|

|thaduke2003||^I'm sure that's part of it- that's why they offer metal bumpers through Mopar Mark W.|

I'm just disappointed to see Jeep keep normalizing the Wrangler since I'll probably own a JK one day.

|BlackHawkTJ||I thought they went to that cheap bumper that was easy to remove on the JK on the theory that almost everyone goes with an aftermarket bumper anyway.|

Darn Plastic Bumpers!
I am not impressed with the stock plastic rear bumper on my '09 Wrangler Unlimited X. Was trying to put the soft top down by myself and stood on the rear bumper to reach the sunrider. When I did the top of the bumper "collapsed" and created a small little crease. Not a huge guy 190 lbs. I would have thought that the rear bumper on a JEEP was designed to withstand more punishment than that!!!
