FYI, I often see steel OEM bumper take-offs showing up on eBay for around $700. That's if you guys can wait. I usually can't. :)
the only problem is no matter what those takeoffs always have issues. I’d rather spend the extra and get factory fresh and not someone’s used take off

What about this skid plate for $112.89? https://www.bamwholesaleparts.com/o...-and-gladiator-jt-skid-plate-steel-68293984ab. I am not sure what the difference is and whether it's going to work with this eBay bumper as well.

Edit: Never mind. Finally found the difference described on https://www.quadratec.com/p/mopar/front-bumper-skid-plate-jl-steel-front-bumper-68293984AB:

This replacement steel plate is an exact replacement that will require the use of the original hardware for installation, If you are installing this plate new and would like a kit with the brackets and installation hardware please see #82215183AB.​
I ordered this plate and the bracket and hardware separately which comes out much cheaper than the kit. Not sure why they upcharge so much for the entire kit together.

Should be able to find this even cheaper. I found a brand new one on ebay for 300 bucks. Went to pick it up the same day. Then spent 200 more for the oem skid plate and hardware. Just waiting on a warm spring day to work on the swap.

Just ordered OEM Steel and winch guard from BAM.

Can anyone tell me. Can I use my close out panel from my plastic bumper?

So I finally decide to order one of the non-OEM Rubi front bumpers and find that they are out of stock both on ebay and Amazon for the sellers that have been mentioned. Anyone have another vendor/seller that they would recommend? Or do I try to be patient and wait for one of these to come back in stock?
As always, appreciate the help and support on this forum!!

I've ordered mine from "rocket-auto19" but, unfortunately, they are also out of stock. :( Try contacting them on the ETA. They were pretty good communicating with me.

Received my bumper from BAM today. Fog covers scratched. I’m sure they’ll make good.

Since you are about to embark on the install, it would be very helpful if you weighed the new and the original ones as you go about it. It will be interesting to see if you experience any "sag" as a result of the increased net weight. Thanks.
