Anyone try Bump Shox?
 
I sometimes have to park my jeep in NYC and as you might guess parking there is usually bad.

I was thinking of buying the bump shox license plate frame for front protection, my question is, has anyone tried it? Does it fit our jeeps without any problems? Thanks

Actually looks like a good idea to protect from scratches from minor bumps while parallel parking. Looks like it would fit the front.

Are those the rubber mats that cars put on their back bumpers? I always though it was a pretty dumb thing, but that's my opinion. I just can't see how a mat is gonna stop damage to your bumper when someone drives into it. I understand scratches, but that's different.

As for your license plate question, idk I guess it's just like those mats to me. If you're worried about other people, try it. If you're worried about yourself I say just learn where your bumpers are. I know I can put my Jeep within a fraction of an inch of objects, even with the brush guard and not hit anything.

When parking you may not be the problem,its the other idiots trying to park and rub and scuff your bumper. I'd say ge some Atthehelm bumpers lol

Hey gt, I know exactly what you mean. And I think it is even worse with the white one.
