    Almost done with the front bumper I just need to cut to size and cap the ends. Also including a pic of the rear with the tire mounted.

    Looks killer, especially the front. Could you get close ups of the front underside? How different is the mounting from your year to my '72? I'd love to have a front like that. Also, pics close up of the rear. Mounting bracket pics for both.

    I dont know what type of flares they are. They were on my first K5 when I bought it about 7 years ago, they are now on their third K5.

    Big Blzn;
    I dont think the frame would matter as much as the placement of the mounting brackets.

    That bumper is very nice. Simple and elegant design. I just bought a Lincoln 175HD welder and you've given me inspiration for my own front bumper design.
