Are you crazy? They're one of the best things about this Jeep. Personally, I have a hard time seeing at night, so the more light, the better. I get better light with the low beams + fogs on than I do with the high-beams on. I just hope I do not "lose fill" when the lights get spaced further apart once my AEV bumper is installed.

FYI for anyone who may be interested - I installed some backup lights in my JK Mopar rear bumper. Picts are at http://www.flickr.com/photos/1932603...7603041845409/ for general viewing.

You know it's the stock front bumper, makes it look like a cross-eyed kid or something. I guess they are too close together for my taste.

Nice work on the backup lights! I like em!

Funny you should mention this issue. I will soon be installing the AEV bumper on the front, which requires the fog lights to be much further apart. They'll be closer to where the headlights are. So now I am wondering if this will have much of an effect on the "fill" that the fogs provide - will they be drowned out by the headlights and really become much less effective? Does anyone know? I guess I will find out soon.

I also have a mopar winch mountable bumper on my JK. I'm looking to purchase and mount the Warn Powerplant HP on it but am unsure whether or not it will fit with the lower winch guard bar. Has anyone ran into similar problems or dealt with this issue?

2 - Does the Mopar Winch Bumper have Tow Recovery Hooks? It does not appear that it does. The dealer claims the ones from the old bumper do not fit and I need to buy new ones that do fit. Is this true?

3 - The dealer says my Friends and Family Discount does not apply to the Winch and Bumper. Is this true?


Any help wold be appreciated.

Thank you.

I ordered the Mopar off road bumper (with fog lights) from the dealer along with the Warn 9.5 low profile winch. The factory tow hooks fit perfect in that bumper. There are a few off road bumpers offered by Chrysler, it depends what you're looking for. Everything fits and works perfect. You can get the bumper to fit with the stock fogs or not. The tow hooks from the original front bumper just transferred over. I found that with some dealers it's best to show them what you want. Get their catalog and have them get the correct parts if you're going with Mopar. In answer to your question I have the off road Mopar bumper with tow hooks, fog lights and Warn winch. The dealer gave me 15% off on everything. Each dealer is different regarding discounts. Some will charge you full list and others will discount.

You do realize you are answering a thread that is almost 3 years old. Alot has happened since he wrote the original post.

The Mopar bumper uses the factory tow hooks. Nothing new needed.

I don't know about your Friends and Family Discount. But I believe you can get the bumpers cheaper than that. I purchased mine from my local dealer for cost plus 10%. This is about the price you will find from the "online" dealers. The front bumper was about $480 and the rear was $454.
I'm jealous... I got the mopar winch bumper with the fog lights... They off set the hole so much for Warn winches that that winch you have and I wanted the Superwinch epi 9000 doesn't fit...I've ended up getting the Warn xd900i instead... That Superwinch would have been just as good.
