Thumbs up Removed Front Bumper Wings - Awesome

Hey Guys,

My FJ is pretty stock to the casual eye. I noticed someone whose FJ looked really clean from the front using the stock bumper.

I googled around and found these:

FJ Bumper Wings - FJ Bumper WingsFJ Bumper Wings | Aluminum Diamond Plate Replacements

I decided that $85 wasn't a bad price either. I ordered the black powder coated ones and discovered they were shipped out the next day (fast shipping). When they arrived the quality was great (no rough edges, paint was great, they were even pre-bent a bit to match the bumper's bends). Rich, the owner, was great through all my interactions. He's been making these for 10 years now, who knew!

Install was a breeze. The most difficult thing was getting the clips off from the OEM bumper wing. Some I ended up just gyrating back and forth and they broke off (and who cares as I'm not ever looking to put them back on the FJ).

The bolts need to be tight but not too tight as you don't want to bend the diamond plate.

Love the bumper wing eliminators. Best option in my opinion for the stock bumper!

To me it always just looks like they got knocked off or stolen

Re: Removed Front Bumper Wings - Awesome

only wish they had a plain "non-diamond plate" pattern option. that diamond plate pattern texture in my opinion seems a little out of place as it doesn't match anything else on a (mostly stock) fj.
a member (easelman) had a nice home-made solution here:
