1987 Wagoneer XJ Limited - Rear Bumper ???

While checking the parts catalog... I have questions:

1) The parts catalog shows an insert for the bumper... Noted with yellow arrows. I don't have one... What model is this for?

2) There are two hole-plugs(?) in the center of the bumper... What are these for?

Thanks for the help! Crist

never seen an insert. maybe someone else knows.

the plugged holes are for trailer hitch bracing.

Thanks for the link!

Where is the best place to post photos?

If you haven't noticed... I'm new to the forum! Can't seem to find the correct area to get help with my restoration project...

red letter members get a gallery hosted here on the site.

goto usercp in the upper left corner of the forum.

click on phtos and albums in the left side list.

create an album and start uploading photos. Those can then be attached to posts you make in the forum.

edit:

I forgot about the question! I've never seen any kind of insert in that groove on the bumper. Pretty sure it's just there because it's there.

Re: 1987 Wagoneer XJ Limited - Rear Bumper ???

I've got an '89 Waggy....the hitch insert is poor at best...not much of a hitch brace. I wouldn't use the two bolts that go there for much more than a small utility trailer. If you're gonna use it as a tow point...put on a true class II-III reciever hitsh.

Not sure about the insert...my bumber looked just like yours in the pic.
