Does anyone know what this black plastic part is called around the loop on the front tubular bumper? I'm having my bumper fixed and rechromed, and I stretched one of them and I have to replace it. Thank You.
do you know who makes the bumper, and perhaps contact them? Wish we could be more helpful but most of us remove anything chrome and toss it. Would it be cheaper to just get a new chrome bumper vs the repair and re-chrome?
It is an original factory Mopar bumper. It has matching sidesteps, and rear. They don't make it anymore, and only cheap looking aftermarkets are available. So, I had to fix and rechrome this one. I actually got the 3'' tube, and had a auto shop, block it and weld new pieces. But, when removing those plastic pieces, I stretched one of the fasteners, and I would like to get new ones.
Yes, I'm aware that most people mod their jeeps. While, I think that is super cool, I like my loaded stock Yuppie build. Anyone know the name of this part, please?
not sure where to get the part, but yeah they are "factory" bumpers that were made by Mopar, you could order them from the dealer. Some dealers would even put them on Jeeps there in house then add them to the sticker price.
I have the complete '97 factory parts listing but it doesn't show that aftermarket bumper. My bet is your dealer probably bought them as a set from a local 4x4 store & had them installed. I used to be in the aftermarket Jeep parts/services business & that very common.
I do have some Mopar aftermarket parts lists but chrome tube bumpers don't show up on them.
I guess they did not start listing those accessories in the parts fiche until 2000. Either way I do not see it as a part you can order. Maybe if he took a picture of it to a dealer their more updated parts manuals may show it.
