I am trying to get some parts together to put my Thing back together.

I am seeking one bumper over ride. It kind of looks like the late bus ones where it is metal with a bumper strip in it and are black in color.

Any leads would be appreciated.

This is going to be a tough and on going parts search. Pretty much need everything on the passenger side (fender, lights, spindle, control arms, wheel bearings, wheel and tire, a new front bumper, both front outter quarter panels, a new hood, the front piece with the logo (both inner and outer), the underneath piece where the bumper attaches, and inner fender well just to name a few off the top of my head.

If they look anything like the ones pictured on my rear bumper - I was told that they aren't original equipment, and I wasn't able to find them anywhere.
