Great color! Ugly bumper or not, still a nice looking Jeep!All your responses making sense. We get the advanced safety package as standard equipment here on all Wrangler models here is Japan. The sensor for forward collision prevention is inside of the box by the interior rear view mirror. But we also have the parking sensors mounts on both front and rear bumpers... see my attached photo.
I have seen a few Japanese aftermarket sites selling steel bumpers with the holes drilled, but they want too much for it. This leads me to consider if I can have my friends to ship me stock US bumpers from the States, it would probably be cheaper even after the freight cost.
Some of you may think.. why not get the steel bumper? Well, per my understanding it is a violation of the Law here. And I may lose my plates if change to the steel bumpers. I don’t quite understand their Law as only been living here since 2017.
I do have a front tow hook, but it is more like a tow loop. Located under the front bumper.yea i did that with my Sport S when i got it home i removed those. i got a question if you don't have the front tow hooks do you at least have the rear one. or do they think you will not to get stuck at all.
I am learning this as goes. So I bought the modified flaps from “Tiger Jeep” - a major Jeep dealer, and keep the stock ones in case I still have this car and in Japan when the 1st inspection is due.Japan has different Pedestrian Safety requirements, those front fillers are part of that requirement. Before you change anything else, check on what is allowed, government restrictions can really limit what's allowed, and fine heavily for any " infractions"
