    Bumper lift brackets for 3\" body lift

    Can anyone fab some of these up for me. I know what to do and all, but i just dont have the resources. I have a 3" bod lift on my 84 k-5, and the rear looks really bad. Not sure how much it costs to make a set of these brackets, but id be glad to compensate anyone if they could make me some. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif Thanks.

    Yeah i think you might be able to flip the mountin brakets upside down to raise the bumper back up. I got bumper relocate in the front on my truck but the rear has a Piece of Diamond plate in the gap. I usally dont have tail gate on while wheelin so i can see whats behind me when backin up to hook some chains up to stuck ppl. You might even try just losin the bolts and liftin the bumper up then tighten them back down. /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif www.zombieoffroading.8m.net

    You cannot make brackets, the ends of the chassis rails come out to the end of the bumper. Basically what your gonna have to do is do what I did. Cut off the ends and weld them up 3 inches higher and then reinforce the crap outta it. I'll post some pics of it as soon as I can. It's kinda a pain but the body and bumper gap look horrible!
