Aftermarket accessories for Jeep vehicles have developed an industry of their own. These accessories are either purchased as an alternative or replacement parts or as enhancements of functions. One of the most popular enhancements or replacement parts for the Jeep Wrangler are bumpers, either the front or the rear. Sometimes, people buy a combination of the two. Bumpers also serve purposes other than protecting the front or rear ends of a vehicle in any instance. The steel EAG Bumpers JL, EAG Bumper XJ, EAG Rear Bumpers, for example, are prime examples of such accessories.
