Default Milspec J8 Bumper Tow Hooks/Rings/Loops

I'm trying to recreate a J8, at least cosmetically. I think I have everything except for the Tow Loops. AEV used to sell them a while ago, but now they are next to impossible to get. If you have some kicking around or know where can I find it, please let me know. Note that in the meantime I'm using the Smithybilts rings, they seem to be strong buy I still want the real ones:

I need this:


Even second hand will work.

try this
6" channel aluminum for the bumper, cut to desired length
rugged ridge makes the tow loops, close enough

Up front just bolt to the stock frame ends
out back, make a mounting plate out of some 2x4 tube and late plate. Drill bolt holes to match tow loops.

Good Job Inline!
Aluminum was my first option, but they were about $100 a piece. Then I opted for galvanized steel, they set me back around $140 total.
And yes, I got the RR loops but they are not as sexy.
I saw them again in one of the 2015 concepts that will be at the EJS.

Default We have J8 parts...

Hi,

We have take off J8 bumpers, tailgates, windshields, and occasionally the D rings. You can contact me for help.

Default J8 Rear Bumper on JK?

Quick Fitment Question:
Will the rear J8 Bumper bolt up to a North American JK?
I've seen the front J8 Bumper on a JK, but not a rear.
