I have one but its minus the fog lights and wire harness for them ad I scavenge for my steel bumper. Heck I even have the rear take-off.
I have the current fog lights in my Euro bumper that I can use.

Any ideas on what to do with a plastic rear bumper and Tire Carrier from a Rubi - getting no bites.


I put the plastic bumper where it belonged-in the trash but gave away the red tow hook.

Wait for someone to get rear ended about to turn in their lease.

I so wish a good Samaritan from the USA would be prepared to ship their take-off unused plastic Rubi front bumper to me in South Africa (I will pay for shipping).

maybe one day my "What did you do TO your Jeep today" post can showcase what a Rubicon should look like (Euro bumper is really ugly).
To you both - there's always the "Pay It Forward" forum, where you can offer up or solicit takeoffs and ultimately get rid of - or find - what you're looking for....if you're patient enough. Especially if you're good for the shipping charges.

As of "now," there are a few rubi/willy's bumpers not yet marked as claimed.

I masked them off and got color matched paint cans from Automotive Touchup (google them). I sanded down the rough coating, 2 coats of primer, sand again, 2 coats of paint, 2 coats of clearcoat... Spraying was easy, but masking them off took about 30 minutes per fender. I waited 45 minutes per coat.
How many base/clear coat cans did you need?

[/QUOTE]

I used 2 coats of primer after sanding the rough black standard coating down, then 3 coats of base color, then 2 coats of clear. I needed 3 cans of primer, 4 cans of color matched paint, and 3 cans of clear. I also painted my stock tie rod, but thats being replaced with the Rustys Offroad steering kit that's on order. I have a little bit left over for fixing any chips that may happen. 2 trips through the car wash and all is good.

I had a kid that put them on his XJ and a friends XJ. I was having zero luck getting rid of the ones that I had. A year or so ago, I put one in recycling.

Added new rpm steering sway links.

That looks great, those type of links are the best way to go with Rubi electro disconnect, IMO. ....... looks like the bolt hit your inner fender when stuffed. Been there, lol. If you turn the bolt around you get about 3/8” more clearance, also you can flatten out your sway bar angle by shortening up the links and it still won’t straighten out at full droop and risk flipping....... just some $.02.

You may have a long wait, mate. Are there any local aftermarket alternatives?


I want this exact configuration, but the soft top frame assembly prevents it. Oh well.

Could you mount it so the fire extinguisher is aligned on the inside of the roll bar?

No, that's precisely where the folding arm box (if that's the correct term) is located. Trust me, I've brainstormed this one. :)

For now, my extinguisher is secured quite well in the left rear cupholder. I'm come to prefer this location, actually.

I mounted mine on the outside of the roll bar, but I’m using a webbing/Velcro holder. Works fine with the soft top.
