    I have a 90 Suburban. I am in need of a new Top Pad for my rear bumper. I have been searching all over for it. Any idea where I can get one.... here are the places I have already tried (LMC, GMTruckParts, Findparts.com, Junkyard Dog, Dealership, ebay) anyother suggestions.... or anyone got one?

    Is this the plastic strip that runs the length of the bumper or?

    I can probably look it up in my parts manual if it's the same back to 1988 or earlier.

    Tried them also.

    Tried them too. it is the same part from 1989 to 1991. the gm part number was 15571637. it is called the Top Pad. it turns the top of the bumber in to a step all the way across. see my pic here.[​IMG]

    Sometimes I hate GM.

    No reason that part should be disco'd already when you can get automatic shifter cables for early 1980's Corvettes. :mad:

    How much would you be willing to spend on one and in what condition, Reason I ask is there's a yard here in town that I've seen a couple of these, I could swing by and check prices/condition and maybe yank one for ya..

    the new one was going to cost 56 so if I could get one for that or less plus what ever shipping. The nicer the better but if there are a few scratches that is fine. That would be awsome. if you can get it even cheaper I will pay you for your trouble. I am getting desperate.

    the other thing the sooner I get it the better I have a new bumper to put on but until I am sure I can get the cap I don't want to put the bumper on. Thanks again.

    I don't think that is it. I need the top plastic cap that goes over the entire rear bumper. only used from 1989 to 1991 Suburbans with the rear cargo doors.
