Mopar Rock Crawler Bumpers
 
Anyone using this bumper (front or rear)?

Rock Crawler Front Bumper by Chrysler and Other Jeep Parts and Jeep Accessories by 4 Wheel Drive Hardware-RH1

I just picked up the front, rear and towbar for $200(total!) of c-list. I was a little skeptical at first, seemed like a "to good to be true" deal. Anyhow, the guy had gotten them as an "upgrade package" from the dealer and decided he didn't want them.
In all the time I've been roaming this forum I've never seen them, so curious if they are crap.

There are several scrapes and dings in the powder coat and just a little surface rust. Should I just clean, sand, prime and rattle paint (was going to use rustoleum). Any other suggestions?

Thanks!

I have the rear mopar bumper....I like it. It suits my uses just right. I haven't seen anyone around my area with one. It goes well with the bestop tire carrier. I have a Kilby front bumper that I like.

I got my rear bumper new from a dealer parts guy I know for a good price. They were clearing their TJ stock since the newer JK models were on the lot. You got a really great deal for both bumpers.

Ok, not that there was much intrest in this thread to begin with, but for future searches I wanted to close it up.
I did wind up getting the front and rear bumper ($200.00 total...for both, not a bad deal!).
Here are some photos.

I have both and the Mopar tow bar. Love the bumpers! Would like to put a receiver hitch in the middle of the rear bumper (I've seen it done), and put a small hoop on the front...just to be a little more different.

Not bad looking bumpers. Especially for the price.

I am running them front and rear here is a pic of the front with a winch. Haven't seen that one posted on this thread yet.
