Ok my bumper on the rear is SHOT!!!! i got a dual tube rear bumper yesterday, but my problem is, when i take my bumper off i will need another piece of steel there so i have a place for my very rear body mounts to bolt onto. Will a tj rear stock bumper bolt onto my yj?

Are you talking about the rear crossmember? There's the frame rails coming back each side then the crossmember is flat steel with some holes in it. It sits flush with the back of the tub. Any bumper/bumperette will bolt onto this. So if you need to replace this, you have some frame repair ahead of you.

Otherwise it should be just unbolt what bumper is there and bolt the new one on.
