bumper end caps

hey everyone, i just took the jugs off my front and rear bumpers, i was wondering if they make caps to cover the ends, i know they do but i cant find them anywhere. all the links take me to something else or the jugs i wanted off. does anyone know where i can find them.
thanks

I see them on fleabay all the time and they are Mopar brand. They look like they would break easily though.

Quadratec has end caps for the oem bumpers...I'd go big and get some crawler bumpers though. Just a thought.

I'm with the crowd that says save your $ for something worthwhile and go capless for the time being.

The dealer has them for cheap. Surprisingly one of the few things they don't gouge you for. They have flat caps for the rear, and angled caps for the front. Should be around $20 ish or less for both sets.

I ran them for awhile. Dealer should be able to get them for you. They are very cheap. Something like $20 for all four. I liked them. Thought they made things look a lot cleaner.

Those flat caps are factory equipment on some wranglers... I got a free set from a buddy when he put real bumpers on his Jeep. I think he had an 05. Maybe someone on this forum or in your area has some laying around in a shed or garage in your local area that they'd give away.

Quadratec has them .... I use them and like them... I like my stock appeal...Im kinda glad I did buy them cause at the time there werent many if any companies making aluminum bumpers. In the future Savvy aluminum will be replacing them.

I used two sets of rears and managed to get them to fit. I cut my front bumper short and redrilled, I think just the top holes, and flipped the end caps upside down. You will have to plan it a bit so the inside of the rubber bumperette just clears the bolt holes for the tow hooks. You can visit my Build thread and check them out I have many pictures. Not sure if I have any of the front bumper but I will take more and post it if you like.

I'm just about to put on a rear tire carrier, so you can have mine from my stock rear bumper. I only have the rears. PM me a zip and I can send them and the associated hardware to ya'. I have the factory flat caps. As mentioned, they're super cheap from the dealer so depending on your location that might (surprisingly) be more cost effective. Caps are free, just pay shipping. Just thought I'd offer cause they're going in the trash otherwise.

People keep telling me taking the rears off is a bad idea because now the corner is unprotected. What do you guys think? I was thinking.about the armour. But until then should I keep them off?
