They did not. What you see on YJs is all different kinds of aftermarket products.

Ok that's what I was talking about then haha, I'm also assuming you have the weird shaped holder next to the rear right light? Know what that is?

And what are the bumperettes used for?

a bumperette is just a band of steel bolted on the back designed to act as a "crush zone" in an impact... cheap, simple, easy to replace, and can absorb a fair amount of energy.

maybe I oughtta fab some up for my JK ;)

Any negatives to them? I bought mine with them already on it, I was just gonna throw some Jerry cans in em

:confused:
bumperettes are just a hoop, no bottom, and the size won't match up...

if jerry cans fit in yours, and they have a bottom plate, they're probably jerry can holders mounted where the bumperettes normally are :)
