I’m out right now, but when I get home I’ll shoot a pic of the rear bumper. I think they used a front bumper from the limited for 5he rear bumper. The front bumper is a custom aluminum setup only used on the overlanders.
Update, the caps on the rear bumper are plastic. I think Tommy told me they were from a special Jeep edition in 82???
They do not have any exposed screws or bolts.

I would be interested in a set or 2 of the aluminum castings. If they are cast without holes, that is how I would like them. I would tig a fastener to the rear to mimic the overlander caps so I can remove the stock ones and preserve them.
The only Jeep I have ever seen them on (with my own eyes in person) was when I did the RHD
I think the front carriage bolts is a good idea, as it would be smoother, but if you have the light tabs as well as pictured ^^, you would have 2 style bolts now on the bumper... I guess it depends on what look is trying to be achieved.
This is definitely a one off case here as the bumper and then brush-guard, tow hooks, etc. are all jammed in there.
If you had just a plain stock black bumper, you would have the mounting bolts for it more visible and those are hex as well.
So, I said a lot here, but I don't have and overwhelming opinion either way... losing a bolt at the top and bottom to clean it up is fine, carriage or hex... not sure.
Did you blast it yourself. Thinking about how I will set up a blast booth to contain the mess and recover the medium.
For the smaller SE extensions, I would imagine the market is very small.
You are probably right. I think ag4ever has a good idea to just cut the longer ones down to resemble the the short ones used on Limiteds and the rear bumper of the Overlanders.Agree here. I wouldn't bother replicating these but might feel differently if I needed a pair. However, the larger end caps were a factory option/accessory for any of the CJs. More people are going to want these.
Amazing work! They look greatView attachment 90994 I finished up a pair of these today for a J10. The original heat sealed design would have been so much easier to do than sewing around all those half-round beads. That's over 50 times going 360 degrees through the sewing machine to do the pair. I gotta stop doing these . . . they take up way too much time.
