The factory tj bumper has tube all the way through. I look at it and wonder, "what could I hide in there? I wonder what other people are hiding in the there?"

So, any cool, clever uses out there? Anyone manufacture a cap or stopper to plug the ends?

Me too. Amazing how well it fits in there!

That tube is not a part of the factory bumper. It is a hollow frame crossmember. Take your bumper off and it will still be there.

You might be able to get some axle shafts in there

Before my SwayLoc, I used that space to store my shovel, I just ran the handle through and secured the shovel's head to the rear of the Front bumper corner.

Weld ends on, drill and tap one end for an air valve. Instant air tank.

looks like you could probably fit some liquor bottles in there.

Line it with pvc and store whatever you want. Paint the caps black and no one would even see it.
