The Jeep frame comes with crush cans that are intended to collapse during a low-speed fender bender before the full bumper and frame take a hit, and this adds a buffer zone before the airbags are activated. AEV considered this a well engineered safeguard and left openings in the stamped bumper for the crush cans to protrude. However, to clean them up a bit, textured polyethylene caps are used that blend in better with the bumper's blueprint.
