Anyone ever seen a factory rear J truck bumper? <79

One thing I noticed looking through the Jeep books and old brochures is that almost all the trucks have a 3 piece rear bumper like the fronts. But every truck I see has either some kind of homemade contraption, or the wrap all the way around the bedsides version, which I saw in one ad illustration. So, anyone ever seen one, and is it the same as a Waggy bumper? -Adam

Adam, as far as I know, my truck bumper came on the truck in '73. It may have been a dealer option or a factory option, but it is typical of the step bumpers on other corporate trucks. It is one piece and the ends wrap around the sides of the bed. My ends are metal; later models have plastic ends.

I have never seen a 3-piece bumper on a J-truck, but that doesn't mean they weren't made. I would think that the step type with the hitch-ball hole would have been more desirable.

Come over and look at it.

My first FSJ was a 79 J10. It had a steel real bumper that had black ABS plastic end caps that wrapped around the rear corner of the truck. The center had a spot for one ball to mount and the tag frame was made into the indention. The orignal bumper was painted silver and had some dents. I ordered a replacement and got the exact same thing except the factory color was white.

Of all the vehicles I have customized that truck was the only one I never took a single pic of.

I could have walked away with both bumpers and a 4bbl offenhouser intake for $80 but I did not have the cash

Nah guy's, he's referring to the fact that a lot of Jeep brochures show the pickup trucks having a rear bumper that looks identical to the standard pre-1979 three piece bumper we're all familiar with.


I THINK I've seen a J-Truck with one before, but most of what I see are what's already been posted.

That's what I meant. The 60s ads show them like they were commonplace. I have seen the 70s step bumpers. -Adam

This one is not too far from being a three piece bumper.

Is this what you have in mind. This isn't my truck but I pirated the photo because I liked the bumper. It's in my file of ideas for my truck's future.

Kinda, but the illustrations in the brochures show a full 3 piece that sticks out farther, even on the thriftside. Looks ok shortened though. -Adam

I'm surprised those ends are still on there!! The 79 I had was about the same, body wise. But it's bumper was rusted through all along the bottom! -Adam

LOL JR,

Looks like you have been having too much fun!

And to think I was going to make you a set of wood bed rails for the Streetside... They would be toothpicks in a month!!

Hey, I could use one of those end caps to make a pattern from, as the patterns from the bed rails.

Please do not throw them away, I will pay shipping to get one.

Thanks,

Actually JR that is a 3 piece bumper...a bumper and 2 end caps.

WHSII those end caps are the short ones. I thought you had the taller bumper?

You are correct Dave,

I see that now. I was going to make duplicates of the metal end caps, but they are not the same either. they are concave...

One day I will find the proper cap, and reproduce it, hopefully.

You been doing ok? drop me an e-mail when you get a chance.
