which factory license plate light trim do you have?

Recommended Posts

A or B?

 

I didn't realize that they could be had without that plastic trim, and yet found 2 members on this trip that didn't realize they could be had with that plastic trim.  :dunno:  Is it a model year thing?

I don't know Pete. None of the years show that to be a thing unless they were either left off from being installed or a shortage of bezels.

My 87 has it , unfortunately my 88 wasn’t ordered with a rear bumper and now has a few so not sure about that one. 

maybe it was Chrysler cutting costs after they acquired amc ? It seems like the older renix era jeeps had cooler interiors with more chrome etc

From what I've seen Pete the plastic is found on Renix and H.O. doesn't have it. All my h.o. did not and I've never seen one in a yard with it either.

You don't know the half of what Chrysler has done and is currently doing.

😆 I would agree entirely. I'm waiting to see how many more recalls are going to come out on these new trucks.

Really ? Like what ? Working at Honda as a tech I also get to see all the issues that the new cars tend to have. I know :icon_offtopic:

I bet there is going to be one for the dual opening tailgate. I know there's a recall that is on hardcore restriction for a piece of rubber that prevents people from pulling on their tailgate handle too hard. Dealers can only order 10 of these pieces and we have 200+ people waiting for it.

A lot of dumb things. DEF used to come with two nozzles per package for the 2.5 gal containers(two come in a box) and now only include one per package. The mass amount of recall restrictions. Having one differential use one weight and the other use a completely different weight(19's and up).

My '88, '89 and '90 with black bumpers are "A" type, with the plastic trim. The NOS chrome Laredo bumper (in the box) with gray end caps & brackets I purchased from a member does not have the trim. Unfortunately I do not have the box with the manufacture date any longer.

 

Bumpers with the trim have four square holes on each side for inserts the screws attach to, unlike the non-trim ones, so the bumpers are actually different.

I have to add that I've never seen a junkyard chrome of any type or owned one. I'm guessing all the ones I've stumbled upon already gone were nice chrome.:brickwall:

My '91 does not have the trim. Both of the older bumpers I have do have the trim.

I didnt even know there was a difference!

 

But these are the 2 of mine I can find pics of...

 

The white truck is a 90 eliminator.

The bumper by itself is unknown. Not even sure where I got it from.

Kryptronic owns both bumpers now.

This is what came with my '91 when I bought it. With such high mileage it's hard to imagine it's original but you never know. It has been repaired somewhat, albeit questionably.

This is an 89 (I think) in a wrecking yard. 3YKxXlu.jpg

 

And this is the bumper I pulled off a '92 in a wrecking yard:

Interesting to note the differences. There's also a round vs square license plate light thing. I assumed my first bumper's lights were just aftermarket tacked on but Pete's first post with the trim has the same ones?

I have no idea if those are factory or not. :dunno:  could someone look that up?

I'm pretty certain the round ones are aftermarket. I've seen some Dakotas share the same license plate light cover as the Comanche.

I've never seen a factory MJ rear bumper that didn't have that trim.

That's kinda what I thought. I was just surprised to see Pete had the exact same ones.

The factory license plate lights are pretty generic anyway.  We also discovered this weekend they are exactly the same as the ones used on FEY bumpers and probably others still produced today.
