The bumpers are ORFAB, and i leave the black extentions on all the time. i replace them every now and then when the tires rip them off
-You can find it in the garden section in HomeDepo/Lowes about 7 bucks for 12 feet

It started off as a cheap build... I bout the rig for 400 dollars running, with a blown 2wd trans. as of right now I'm in it under 3k..
I started with a 4" lift and Rubicon rims

When I saw your 2nd picture I thought you had busted your wheel liner out, then I realized what you had done with the extensions. I've heard of guys using that stuff but hadn't seen pictures so I figured it must look awful, but you pulled off man! Welcome to CF!
