    I'm trying to find out where I can get brackets to move my bumper back where it belongs. I have a 3" body lift on my 85 blazer and I'm planning on buying new bumpers but i dont want them hanging down away from the body. If they can't be bought, does anyone have a pattern to make them, or can they be fabricated fairly easy? Please help me!!!!

    Thanx

    Contact Performance Accessories. They are pretty pricey though, like 39 a set or something like that. Semper Fi!

    If you ain't hurt, you ain't playin' hard enough.

    If you are going to buy bumpers why not just have the person who is making them add an offset to compensate for the 3" difference in height? My .02.

    J:(P it's what's for dinner!

    I have the before-mentioned home made brackets in my bodylift section on my homepage. They still hold upp nicely, but I recomend you take it as inspiration and see if you cant better the design. They where easy to make, but I know with a few more hours I could make them stronger..

    Anyway, check them out:
