Passenger Vehicle Bumper Requirements
28071. Every passenger vehicle registered in this state shall be equipped with a front bumper and with a rear bumper. As used in this section, "bumper" means any device designed and intended by a manufacturer to prevent the front or rear of the body of the vehicle from coming into contact with any other motor vehicle. This section shall not apply to any passenger vehicle that is required to be equipped with an energy absorption system pursuant to either state or federal law, or to any passenger vehicle which was not equipped with a front or rear bumper, or both, at the time that it was first sold and registered under the laws of this or any other state or foreign jurisdiction.


Amended Ch. 451, Stats. 1973. Effective January 1, 1974.

Now you need to find out how your jeep was designed, if your vehicle is designed to "crumple" up untill a certain point then you wont need a front or rear bumper. That's my understanding is that correct jeff? Newer vehicles are built with crumple zones and shouldn't need a bumper.

Just how far do you think you'd get with the cop or judge with that argument?

well it all depends on the litigation. if you can litigate then you have no problem you just have to know the vehicle code. If it were me, i'd expect to get pretty far hahah

Mine says that it expires in one day - only it really expired two weeks ago.I am not really sure what I was paying for so I thought I'd let it laps.

Think mine is expired too. I don't see the banner anymore. But alas, I soon as the Jeep sells, I'll be going to Corvetts for awhile. Then back to a Jeep.

Guess not, it's still red.
