YJ or TJ front bumper wanted

Post  THOOPY3 on 6/23/2013, 10:32 am

In light of recent events, I'm in search of a front bumper to replace the dinged up one from the accident I was in. Anything would work for me as long as it's not dented/dinged as well. Rust and what not isn't an issue. Preferably I'm looking for a cheap factory bumper to throw back on there, but if someone has an aftermarket front bumper (full width) they're looking to part with I'd consider it depending on the price. An aftermarket one would need D-ring tabs.

Let me know what you have. Thanks guys.

Love me either way...

We could always make a rear into a front.  wouldn't be hard at all.

I've been on the road for years.  Fly back from Nevada tomorrow morning, so some time this week is definitely fine.

Andrew, if Ryan's isn't a front bumper can I use yours as a contingency plan? I have a TJ rear bumper on mine now, and after looking at it, trying to turn it into a front bumper would take considerable effort.

My front is totally mangled, but you can have it for free if you want. The bolt holes still line up (I know because it's on mine). Lemme know if the others don't work out. I know you said you don't want anything dented, so this one should be fine. They're not dents, they're severe bends. lol!

That's about how I'd describe my bumper now. It already looked like shit before, so I'm looking at this as a minor upgrade. I had plans to sand it and paint it, but it's too far gone now. It's one thing if I could tell people it was from a rock, it's another saying it was from a Subaru. I may take a grinder to it and turn it into a stubby as I still have my old brush guard, but for inspection and safety purposes I'm thinking full width for now. All things considered the bumper took the brunt of what I thought was going to be a front end-destroying impact.

So it turns out Ryan has a rear bumper, so I'm still on the hunt for one. Andrew, if yours is still an option that would be great. I sent you a PM, but wanted to post it here also in case you see this first.

Right now I'm not looking to spend any large sum of money until (hopefully) I get a pay out from the other person's insurance agency. I just need a cheapy stock one to pass an inspection and feel comfortable driving to D.C. with. It's now been NINE DAYS and I haven't heard back from this lady's insurance company about doing an appraisal on the Jeep, which has been sitting in my driveway since last Tuesday. I'm about ready to pull a Hernandez on these people.

Just went through the waiting game with my truck . The other ins co said that they had to confirm who was over 50 % at fault before they came to look at it.
They finally came and now i'm waiting for an offer as they said they were going to total it.
This waiting thing is very frustrating,,, this truck was driven from Haverhill to Woburn and back every day now we have gone from over 25 mpg with the Ranger to 15 mpg driving a tj .
