Bumper Interchangability by Year?

I have a '92. I messed up the bumper. It is the older style with two Torx bolts on the bottom, and two in the front.


I want to go to the JY and not pull off all the bumpers until I find one. So I'm hoping someone knows if newer ones (where there are two Torx bits on top and two on the bottom) are compatible. Any other weird issues I should know about?


Thank you.

The old and new body style front bumpers do not bolt on interchange. The fender sheet metal and the bumper end caps are different as well.

84-96 interchange
97-01 interchange

You can make a 97-01 bumper work on yours as long as you get the brackets too but you will have to drill new holes for your end caps and the contour won't match perfectly, there will be extra holes in it, etc.

The fenders will need to be trimmed also.

Only if he was to use the 97+ end caps right? I was referencing using his original end caps. I didn't think you had to trim if you kept the older end caps.

Yes, correct.

I still have the stock bumper off of my '96 if you need it.
