    Believe me, that bumper is still solidly attached to the frame. Looks like i know what my next project on the blazer will be.

    Still can't see the pic, but I'll you about mine. My back two body mounts were rusted out so bad that was left of bed was resting directly on the frame, it punched through.. Solution: New GM Floor, haha.

    [​IMG] <font color=blue>Nice Matt! I think that may be the hill I cut one of my TSL's on when I went with Mike, Walt, Bill and Seth last month. You going on the 3rd?

    I doubt ill make it on the 3rd, due to financial restrictions resulting from the very same body mounts. If by some freak reason i get them done and all the bills paid and the truck inspected, i will definately be there, but dont count on it. [​IMG]

    yeah, i know. They sit kinda ok when its level, but when the body pulls away the mounts dont hold it back. You can see how bad the fronts are, thank god the back ones are good. This is being fixed ASAP. Makes for good photo ops, but im not interested in leaving my body somewhere the rest of the truck isnt. Its hard enough to find a rust free tub, i dont want to lose this one now........

    yeah, the bumper is solid, in some of the pics (prints, the scans arent the best) I can see the actual passenger mounts gapping like 8-10 inches from the frame. My new mounts are already ordered, they should get here monday...

    On the driver side, the bumper mashed the side marker light. I saw that and was like, what the hell? but now that i see the pics i understand.
