    Anyone know where I can get some bumper brackets to compensate for a 2" Body lift, it's for stock bumpers.

    I searched for awhile today and all the links I found were for whole kits. I am sure if you called some companies direct like Rough Country, Rancho etc. They would sell you just the brackets. Well its worth a try anyway. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Sorry to tell you this but aftermarket bumper brackets do not exist for the pre 88' vehicles(pre 92' for blazers).
    I couldn't take looking at my 3" gaps any longer and broke out the torch, welder, and grinder and here is what I came up with. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I couldn't find any either. I had to do a little cutting and trimming and made my own. Not very strong, just cosmetic!!

    you might want to pm greg72 for some solutions. he has a body lift and did some cool work on his truck. he drilled some holes in the bumper mount and re mounted them a little higher. he can probably supply you with some pics and a little more knowledge. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    I was able to raise my bumpers 3" without having to drill anything. I just welded the frame horns to an 8" piece of thick flatbar and rewelded it to the frame 3" higher. It is very strong and looks good too. /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif
