Willys 2020 first come with euro bumpers, then when they started the production again in June, euro bumpers no longer available in Willys...
Are the wires exposed on the back of the 2021 Willys bumper? Or did they add a new piece that covers it? I would like to remove my euro bumper inserts on my 2021 Sport S, so if they make a cover I would like to pick them up rather than cut mine up.

I cut my euro end caps. If you leave them off, the wires are exposed. The most difficult part was removing them. I used a cut off wheel on my 4” grinder. I conservatively, test fitted, then used a silver Sharpie to mark the final cut. Then I smoothed the edges with a DA palm sander.

Compared to the Sport S the Willys gives you black Moab wheels, LT255/75 mud tires, larger brakes, different shocks, black grille, "Willys" decal on side of hood, "4 Wheel Drive" decal on rear, different front bumper, limited slip, no "Euro" air dams between front bumper and front fenders, and rock rails.
Willy’s definitely come with the air dams.......

nice job!
Thanks. I've worked the automotive aftermarket in the past and I've had to modify various parts over the years. I'm kinda OCD about it. There are a few little parts that I could have finished better, but I cut the tip of my thumb open with cutoff wheel, so I had to get it all put back together and clean the wound up.

Get the girl the Willys if that's what she wants. Happy Wife, Happy Life. It's just a vehicle. It will wear out and she'll get another one. Don't give her what she wants and that will work for me in her life too.

Besides,if its her jeep, you can just buy what she likes and nothave to mod the crop out of it like you will yours!

If you plan on doing any mods, stick with the Sport S. You'll just be paying extra for the Willys and replacing all the upgraded mods that come on it.
