Mopar bumper molding

I ordered the Mopar front bumper molding from JustforJeeps and installed it as soon as I received it.

I like it but I'm not 100% sure it looks good. The part does not fit perfectly flush with the bumper. I can see gaps on the side.

Paid around $240.

What do you think?

Re: Mopar bumper molding

Makes it look like a Toyota in my opinion. Have you considered it in chrome or matte black? May be too much chrome at that point, I just think the chrome grill, fog light bezels, etc make the grey molding look kinda funny.

I tend to agree. It looks like a JC Whitney original.

Re: Mopar bumper molding

It's a nice look. Get its painted black and put a huge led bar in the hole

Re: Mopar bumper molding

It looks ok, but would look better painted black.

Re: Mopar bumper molding

Here, I fixed it! I used plasti-dip and clear coat. Not perfect but looks really good. I'm thinking about installing the LED bar in the picture right in the molding opening between the tow hooks cover plates.
