Looking 4 rear bumper ideas

My dog has a "ruff" time jumping in from the tailgate. Since the rear bumper is just painted metal, his hind legs slip. I was thinking about black skateboard tape. Anyone have a better idea? Thanks

That would look good. Order a strip that's as long as the door and only do the top. A skateboard grip would be too short and leave 12 inches either side. Wraping it down and around would look tacky and would skuff your legs if you were to lean up against it. Good idea

yup. I was planning on only taping the top part. I found a company online n they told me lowes sells their tape which would b long enough. But It's only two inches wide so I'll probably use two. I'll post a pic if I go that route.

thanks. I'll look into it. From what their website advertises, it should work.

Spray on Bedliner on the bumpers helps my dogs out.

My pops put some thick clear 3M plastic over his rear bumper to keep it nice, you cant see it and it give the pups some traction. I have to help my male into mine. he's getting to old to jump high enough lol gotta love humping a 100lbs dog into an XJ

=) the only blemish on my xj is the top of the rear bumper. Now that u tell me 3m has clear plastic for it, don't know what to do. Before it was either skate board tape or krylon non skid coating which would hide those scratches. But painting it and putting on that clear plastic to me seems nicer. Thanks for throwing that wrench =)

I wouldn't use anything to rough, could be worse for your pup

I don't think so. My bird dogs live in a concrete kennel year round and when hunting run full blast 6hrs at a time through fields, woods, briar patches, gravel roads, swamps, you name it they will find it. Feet never seen the carpet of my house other then the occasional rug in a hunting lodge. Dogs feet are very tough, I could see where a house dog that never goes outside, gets manicures and poops in the corner everyday could get a scuff from the grip tape but unlikely. Nothing to hurt him.
