Do you have a picture of them?

They are sweet. I just looked over the 10A in Anvil. That's a very interesting color. Loved the hood but the bumpers stood out. I plan on asking the dealt next visit.

the hood is very cool too.. similar to AEV

the hood and bumpers are both metal ( bumper has removable end caps )

WOW! I had to double check the date of this thread. I thought there for a minute that I got caught up in some kind of a reverse time warp back to January. Wooh!, what a relief. :whistling:

Your not gonna like what they tell ya. I think they sell for about $1300 for the front & you have to buy the winch mount kit as well. It doesn't come with the winch mount, it just has a place to mount the plate if you want to.

You can get the same bumper with a winch plate. ! I just dont think they will order them unless you own one ??? I am going to check too.

Here is the one I looked at yesterday. If this would have a been an unlimited, I would probably had a tough time walking away :)

Funny, I stopped by a dealer today in Maryland and asked if the front bumpers were available for sale, and if so, how much the front bumper cost. They said that Jeep had not released the bumpers for sale yet. Only on the production vehicles, i.e. the 10yr anniversary jeeps. The dealer said to call back in a few months, maybe he could get me one. He did not know the cost.

roxbury29 05-16-2013 09:03 PM

I was told also to check back in a month or 2. honestly they should be available, if someone owns a 10th ann. rubicon and wrecks it. how will they get parts ???

ThingsAbove 05-17-2013 08:56 AM

Just watch the for sale section. Some 10A owner is going to want a different bumper and sell theirs for half the "new" price.

One owner had damage within 24 hours of delivery. He said the dealership had to provide Chrysler with all of his ownership papers along with other detailed info in order for them to order an new hood. He posted on one of the numerous 10A threads. So we shall see when/if Chrysler loosens their grip on the hood.

^ i hope time will help..

The bumper for a factory built, is pretty awesome. not plastic, has removable end caps and can accept a winch. They should offer and sell these to everyone !! I am going to push my dealer to help me order one :) sounds easier than it will likely be

hbciv 05-21-2013 09:59 PM

Agree! This bumper is awesome. I want one! Can't wait to see some detailed pics of how the winch mounts, etc.

I asked about ordering a 10A hood and was told there is a 10month back order. Prob the same for the bumpers. I think all Rubicons should come stock with these bumpers.

That was my original plan but those things have grown on me! My Mickey Thompson 33s from my previous rig are sitting in the shed getting lonely! But I'm keeping my hood and bumpers!:punk:

I never got anything with the recall in the mail. But do you have the TSB #? or something? I'm trying to find a dealership that will work with me on letting Chrysler know about the End cap problem with the 10A Bumpers. This can give Chrysler a chance to get BOTH problems fixed at once.

Hello Sir,
Before you sell your 10A Bumper, I don't suposed you can take some pictures of the end caps. Most spifically, the way the bolts are threaded into the end caps. Even try to take the end caps off, and put them back on and note the results. Or put the bumper back on, take your Jeep to the dealership and have them try.

There seems to be a problem with the "removable" endcaps on the 10A Bumpers. I'm trying to find a dealership that is willing to work with me so that those of us who like and want to keep our 10A Bumpers can get it fixed under warranty for a manufacutre defect.

From what I can tell, it seems the end cap holes do not properly line up with the main bumper, resulting in the crossthreading of several of the bolts. This damages the bolt, and U nut that secures them.
Thanks,

Do you perhaps have pricing for the front and rear bumpers complete?

I've ordered 1 of the 100, 10th Anniversary Rubicons that just arrived in South Africa but they don't come with the off road bumpers and we can't order them from dealerships here either.

i dont believe they are going to announce it . yes untill the new bumpers are available . this is the information i have got from a friend of mine who is the parts manager at a local very big jeep dealer .

I missed a 10A front bumper on craigslist a few weeks ago. Damned thing was listed for $350! Still kicking myself. Of course it was sold when I called.

Hoop, Winch Mounting Plate for JK 10th Anniversary Edition Bumper

I saw five of the 10th Anniversary Jk Edition Jeeps at a local custom Jeep shop; Fortec Custom Jeeps. They seemed to have a solution for a winch installation. I also liked the center hoop. There website is fortec4x4.com. Too bad I only have a Sport.
