Being the cheap Barstard that I am & also wanting to save weight, I stubbed my stock bumpers & mounted my jack & shovel all for under 10 bucks.
Two 5 inch bolts were welded to the front tow hooks & 30 rivets for the bumpers.
After I cut the end caps off, I had to cut the steel bumper. I cut two slits in it & bent it in towards the jeep until it reached 90 degrees. Then I simply heated up the plastic end caps & forced them over the bumper. Had to cut a slit in them to help accomplish this. Make sure you cut the caps long enough. The passenger side turned out better than the drivers side.
The shovel & Jack are out of the way & easy to get off. Just a 3/4 inch wrench is needed. I put rubber belting between all metal pieces & some radiator hose under the shovel blade. It doesn't rattle at all.
The rear was pretty easy too. The plate is an old yield sign I had. When trimming the rear plastic, you have to leave a "tab" on the top so you can heat it up & bend it down so you don't have a void on the top edge.
Any Q's just ask.
