I've switched over to a steel Rubicon rear bumper. My issue is that I need some sort of plug to cover the sensor holes. My Rubicon doesn't have the parking assist package.
Has anyone found a decent looking plug to insert into sensor holes?

Awesome


awesome! They look great. question; It looks like you may have installed them from the inside? Maybe not...
I'll check out Ace hardware, Thanks!
No...simply popped them in from the outside. Takes less than a minute to plug both holes. Holding up great after a few months and several offroad trips.

Found these 3/4 plastic plugs at menards like you would see in the center of an old bathroom faucet knob. Worked perfectly!

I switched to the mopar steel bumper as well. I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do at first, but decided to add additional LED reverse lights in the holes since the reverse lights on the Jeep aren’t that great. It provides a little more light in the dark, I’m sure it’s not as half bright as some of the strip lighting or cube lights I’ve seen on the forums, but I’m happy with them and it gives it a clean look. I couldn’t find lights that fit exactly so I went with lights that are a little bit larger than the holes.so I took a step bit to widen it a tad. I ran the wiring up to the taillights. Overall it was a pretty easy install and I’m happy with the results.

Yup! Steel takeoffs.
Thanks! The amazon link plugs fit all 4 sensor holes? Just snap in? Also did your steal bumper come with license plate lamp or did you have to swap from prior bumper?

Traveling right now so I don’t have the jeep with me, but yeah I recall them just snapping in. Didn’t have to swap anything on the bumper other than the pieces between the bumper and fender.
