Default 2006 Bumper pad?

Has anyone seen a rubber bumper pad for the 2006 models?

Mopar has a picture of it in their 2006 catalog, but no item associated with it.
The item below the picture was actually door handle guards.
The guys as the dealership couldn't seem to find it anywhere.

I have seen a few places attempting to sell the 2005 and down pad as a 2006 pad.
This one for example: http://www.ptcompany.co.uk/Assets/im...r-step-pad.jpg
But I think the '05 pad look right on a '06 bumper.

Or does anyone know of a DIY way to do this that will look good and be durable?

Sry to double post,
I found this DIY option:

The guy had it done with truck bed liner.

I am not sure if I like that or not, I would rather have rubber then a hard truck liner.

I had the exact same problem. I went to the dealer and asked and got the same answer as you got. I looked at the back of some Caravans and thought about buying one of them and trying it. The bedliner thing looks pretty decent.

Lamin-X is a good solution. The Cruiser rear bumper is not really an area that get used as a step, but will get scuffed up without some protection.

I used a pad from 2002. I had bought it to put on my 02, but replaced the PT with a 2006. I had scuffed the rear bumper prior to placing it on the 02 and realized that I needed protection. I'm sure that someone eventually will make a pad for the 2006 & 7's.

My problem is I bought my PT used, it was perfect besides the bumper scratches, so I can't protect what is already scratched.

But you can cover up what is scratched.

I guess I should say there are no scratches outside the accented area of the bumper, but enough that tha '05 pad wouldn't cover them all.

Talking Re: 2006 Bumper pad?

Zapwizard!
I am the culprit on the 2006 rear step pad that you posted.

I am a golfer and do-it-yourselfer. So, when I searched everywhere for a step pad, and unsuccessfully tried the older model....
I came up with the idea that "soonercruiser" needed some more OU Sooner logos. I roughened the paint....did opposite directions of double layered mounting tape, placed a sized print out of the OU logo on top, and cut that out.....placed that on the paint.....AND....
Went to Line-X and said spray me a bed liner on top. Cost me $150.
I could have gotten a color for about $150 more!

I sent a e-mail to Rhino linings but I haven't got a reply yet.
They apparently have a softere material that may look nicer then a hard spray on liner.
What type of liner did you get?
