M1009 Rear Bumper on a Burb ?

    I finished mounting the front bumper and brushguard from an M1009 CUCV on my 89 Burb. Looks pretty sweet powdercoated!

    I finally found a rear M1009 bumper with all the brackets including the tow points. I am getting ready to send the bumper to powder coat and was wondering if anyone has done this swap onto a burb and whether the bolt holes for all the brackets are already there on the Burb. I will be checking this out this afternoon as I need to take off the license plate bracket from my existing bumper to have it powder coated with the bumper. Just wanted a quick thumbs up or down on the mount points.

    The front bumper tow bracket holes were all there on my burb so I am HOPING they will be on the rear.

    Thanks for any info.

    M1009 rear bumper for '89 Blazer

    Hey AZ_Overdrive, I know it's now an ancient post, but were you able to easily fit the M1009 rear bumper on your '89 'burb with the included brackets? I'm eyeing one of these for my '89 Blazer and wondering what sort of job I might be in for. Thanks much in advance for any tips.

    Jeb

    LMC lists the same part # for Blazers and Suburbans

    http://www.lmctruck.com/icatalog/CSB/full.aspx?Page=26

    so I'd say that an '84 Blazer rear bumper (which is what the M1009 is) should fit an '81+ Suburban. It would not directly bolt up to a 73-80 as they have a different frame.

    Note that there are the square holes through the bumper for shackles, and steel tubes for mounting them, but IIRC it all bolts up pretty easily.
