Default 2017 Bumpers

Does anyone know if the newer styled bumpers will fit on a 2013 JKU?

I saw a new black rubicon today and I really like the bumpers, both front and rear as well as the painted red tow hooks.

So... does anyone happen to have some new 2017 bumpers lying around that they swapped out for new HD bumpers that they'd be willing to sell IF THEY FIT a 2013?

Thoughts?

All factory JK bumpers are interchangeable.

Tom,

If your talking about the Recon, Hard Rock, or anniversary edition bumpers, they will fit but might require minor tweaking....along the lines of Rednroll's thread here -

Tom. I agree with all above posts. I have done it and they will fit.

Red details rear bumper. I didn't add passenger side tow hook so my install was much easier.

Only thing to add is for the front. Hard Rock/X/10A fog location is wider than other sport/etc bumpers. You will need to modify the wiring loom a bit to reach the new fogs. This is nothing more than opening the loom and pulling the wiring apart a bit and extending to new location. Throw on some new loom and done.

I am on the east coast. I assume you mean Long Beach CA. But I have found a 10A rear someone is selling for $150. That's REALLY cheap. PM me if you want the details.

Good to know they'll fit!

$150 for a rear bumper sounds pretty good. My Jeep is actually in Sylva, North Carolina right now. I bought it back in August, but haven't actually laid eyes on it yet. I just got into the country about 3 weeks ago. In one week we head to Orlando for a couple weeks, then on to North Carolina so the build can begin.

I'm guessing the shipping on a rear bumper will cost more than the bumper itself. Where is it located?

And "Yes." it was a recon Jeep that I saw, and the bumpers were awesome. Jeep finally got them right!
