Anyone know if the end caps from the China bumper will fit on the Mopar bumper?

. Originally purchased from Amazon, received it in 2 days in Maryland. Bumper arrived with just a few small nicks, particularly where I took the end caps off but nothing too drastic. Used random rustoleum matte black touch up paint to cover it, doesn't look perfect but you can't tell from a few feet away. I Used the light brackets the bumper came with to install my factory LEDs but the hardware that comes with them kinda sucks so I will probably have to replace at some point. I have zip ties in there now so the lights aren't perfectly aligned. Also installed the Mopar skid plate, the Mopar fairlead plate to over the holes and a Warn Evo 10S on the winch plate that came with the bumper. Everything fit great, time will tell how the winch plate holds up. I tested it with just the weight of the Jeep up a slight incline and seemed to do okay.

Overall definitely worth it for the price, between the bumper and skid plate it only cost about 650.

Looks awesome! Nice wheels too! I put the same one on mine about 3 weeks ago. I ordered from Amazon and after a week it still hadn't shipped, so I cancelled and ordered from ebay. I got the front and rear. I used the foglights that came with the bumper and they're even brighter than stock. I'm not sure how long they'll last or if they'll fill up with water or something, so it's in the back of my mind that I might have to replace them with OEM LED fogs for a steel bumper down the road.

I don't have a winch yet but I love the way it looks with the winch in there. Is that the Evo 10S?

Damn I want this at its price point so bad!

has anybody managed to get one to Canada? If so, how? And was it costly?
Same here. It's too bad the border is closed or I'd happily have it shipped there to pick it up.

For those who are seeing rust with these Ebay/Amazon bumpers - would you have expected to see rust on the factory steel bumpers with the same scratches/pitting? I'm wondering if it's any worse than the way a factory bumper would react under the same conditions.

They should. I replaced mine with the Mopar end caps and they fit fine. If you want my takeoffs, I'm willing to sell them for $100 including shipping. It would just be the end caps though, I reused the bolts.

Good to know! I actually picked up a pair of China end caps for free and maybe will stumble across a MOPAR stubby bumper one day.

Would this JK version work ok? This is one of the few bumpers that ship to canada.

I believe the JK and JL bumpers are interchangeable

Anyone have any experience?

If you are in the greater Montreal area, you can have it shipped to Halfway house freight forwarding in Dundee.

their building sits right on the border so they have a US address and a Canadian address for same building.

they charge about 7.00 a package and are open Saturdays.
When you leave, you go through Canadian customs and pay the taxes.

I use them all the time.

Theres nothing shady about it, the whole setup is a quirk of history. The house was on the Quebec side 100 years ago and when the border moved it split the house so an accommodation was issued.

They receive US packages from the US side and we get them from the Canadian side. When you leave you are funnelled to customs where you declare what you have.
