Jeep CJ5 Bumper
DIY Tricks to Keep Your Jeep CJ5 Bumper Looking New
Whether you're in for a casual driving or geared up for offroading, having reliable bumpers is paramount. This is primarily because your Jeep CJ5 bumper serves as your frontline protection on the road. Needless to say, your vehicle must always be equipped with a premium-quality bumper. And to make this component last longer, here are a number of ways to preserve it:
- Get rid of old bumper stickers using lighter fluid.
You may be one of those drivers who want to express their creativity through car stickers. It's cool and awesome for some time, but when you realize that you don't want them there anymore, it can be troublesome to remove. There's no need to worry about these stickers, as they can easily be removed with some lighter fluid. All you have to do is to pour some of this fluid over the stickers you want to get rid of, then let it soak for a couple of minutes. After they have soaked well, you can remove the stickers effortlessly with a razor blade.
- Restore the bumper's factory color with a bumper shine.
As the name says, a bumper shine restores the bumper's original gleam. You can also use other cleaners as an alternative if you can't find a bumper shine in auto shops near you. To make your bumper look new again, apply some bumper shine on the plastic trim and spread it evenly. In addition, you can also apply protectant that's specifically designed for preserving rubber and plastics. It slows down the dirt and grime buildup on the bumper, keeping it away from contaminants.
- Use a plunger to remove dents.
When you get into a minor frontal collision, your car's bumper will most likely take the first hit. This can leave the bumper dented or even dilapidated. One way to recover your bumper's original shape is to use a plunger. Simply place the plunger on top of the dent and let its suction power pop the dent out. Take note, however, that the plunger can only do so much—it can only remove dents that are smaller than the plunger's size.
