    If anyone is interested....

    Finally finished the CUCV (Blazer) rear bumper install on my Burb. It is NOT a "bolt-on" operation. The Burb rear frame is different that a K5. Had to drill a total of 12 holes into the frame and brackets in order to get the tow pins to work. However, the front bumper bolted right up.

    Nice. I am taking the front bumper of of my CUCV to put on my Burb this weekend. I am going to paint it and mount some lights in it.

    Did you hook up the blackout lights?

    Linked the front blackouts to the fog lights. Would like to eventually have them with the parking.

    Didn't do the rears after I found out that they didn't work.

    You shouldn't have ANY problem with the front. Should bolt right up. I had both bumpers and guard powder coated.

    Thanks for the thumbs up.

    It took me a LONG time to track down the bumpers. I got the front and brush guard from Boyce in Utah. They were EXPENSIVE, but seemed to be the only place to find a decent front with guard. I delt with the owner and he was VERY helpful and courteous. Picked up the rear from a salvage yard back east. Can't remember the name right now but the price was GREAT. I think I got the rear for around $100 + shipping.

    The Burb is mostly a tow rig pulling quads and occasionally my travel trailer. Haven't done any hard wheeling with it mostly just trails so don't have any "cool" pics as of yet. However, if I can locate a 454 for a reasonable price that may change!

    First off... IT LOOKS GREAT and I hope you don't mind that I am going to steal the idea...

    Secondly, Does the vertical bar in the grill guard interfere with the high beams?

    Thanks for the cool tech.

    heh, I "borrowed" the idea from someone else too!

    High beams don't seem too affected. I am shure there is some blockage but I don't notice it.
