    They were never in the U.S, they just imported them to the U.S.

    As far as I knew, they stopped importing to the U.S. a couple years ago. I guess there just wasn't enough 'demand' for them at the time. I was lucky enough to get mine when I did - and that was 10 years ago.

    How many TJM bumpers have you even wheeled with?
    Not many of them out there. I've never heard of them twisting up.

    IMO the TJM is/was the best looking bumper out there. Especially the ones without the big hoop/light bar thing. Its a shame they aren't around any more.

    Hey 984bangertaco.... Have you thought about trying to call TJM and asking if they ever plan on importing again? I used to have the name & e-mail of the U.S. sales rep from 10 years ago.
    Here's their website:

    It can't hurt to ask!

    I know there are a lot of folks like you that like them that way. Its a personal thing for me. I just like them better without the hoops and those big bumper pads on the front. I feel the same way about the ARBs. If ARB offered a bumper without them, I would have one on my truck right now.
