This description of Safety Group features is from the Jeep website
  • ParkSense® Rear Park Assist System
  • Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Path Detection
  • LED Taillamps
  • Injection Molded Black Rear Bumper
Look at the last item. Does this imply a plastic rear bumper no matter what? What about OEM steel bumper?

I have safety group with OEM steel bumper. I don’t know what that’s about.

I have both. You can get the safety group with the steel bumper, if you also order the steel bumper upgrade. The description you reference simply means that the Parksense sensors, without the steel bumper upgrade, are installed in the stock plastic rear bumper.

This. You can have either or both. The safety group comes with standard bumpers or you can upgrade to steel bumpers and have the safety group added.

Thanks for the quick responses. I want both, and I couldn't imagine still charging me $1,395 and then just giving me a steel front bumper. That 4th bullet point ("injection molded...") serves no purpose whatsoever.

This may change but on the JLU Sport/Sport S, the steel bumpers are not a factory option.

However, since the safety group includes the rear sensors in the bumper, Jeep had to make it known that the rear bumper, although plastic, is not the same as the standard plastic bumper.

Since it sounds like you’re optioning a Rubicon, you have nothing to be alarmed about in regards to a steel rear bumper with rear sensors.

I agree. I think toothbrushes are injection molded, along with most of the plastic stuff we buy. Not a selling point for me.

The Safety Group sensors are built into the rear bumper; there are no sensors built into the front bumper —in North America at least.

I think that description is just a poorly worded attempt to indicate that the rear bumper has sensors in it.
