    I was wondering if you can put a 2nd gen bumper onto a 1st gen blazer. I have a winch with a winch bumper on the 2nd gen and would like to get my winch onto my 1st gen quickly. Quickest way I can think would be just swap the bumpers, but is that going to work? If not, what do you guys suggest that could be done in the next week before I go to Hollister?

    I do not think that it will "bolt on". I believe that the frame widths are different from 1st to 2nd gen. You will need to fabricate some brackets and/or break out the welder.

    A quick check w/ a tape measure should tell you.
