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.

Tom!

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

Thanks!

Cheers!

Leave them in the sun without Armorall. Grate them and sprinkle liberally on your fresh al dente pasta with a delightful portabella mushroom sauce, garnish with parsley, and serve with a dry red Bordeaux.

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

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.

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.

This is the only way to sell cars/trucks meeting the average CAFE standards..And rest assured that the bumpers will comply with the federal bumper standards..Read some more here
