The 01' Jeep Wrangler we pull as a toad does double duty as a off road explorer. To jazz up the looks, and put on a winch I changed out the factory sheet metal bumpers. The look really came out nice, and I installed a M8000 Warn winch. I had done a Rancho Suspension lift about 3 months ago, and the winch softens the front end a bit. I was going to throw out the factory bumpers, but I wanted to ask if any one needs them. They are free if you can use them. I also pulled off a Hidden Hitch 2" receiver tow bar that can be had cheap.

I put on a couple of off road style tubular custom made bumpers, and it really changed the look of the Jeep. The Jeep makes a great toad, and the wife even loves driving it. Getting ready to start full timing in less than a year!

Yeah, I just wanted to give em away. Are you going to put a winch on the front? If so, shop around as I found that they vary quite a bit in price.

Put them on Craigslist, at the price of free, they should disappear pretty quick.
