    Those things are flimsy that LMC sells. Too much money IMHO. I had a small bull bar on mine from the PO but gave it away and ended up buying one from DP_90k5 off of here that is nothing but beef. Try Smittybilt or some place like that if you want to keep your stock bumper.

    JC Whitney still has them listed for the older trucks. When I was looking for one for my 76, many people didn't show a listing or if they did, they didn't stock it. JC Whitney had it in stock. I was all set to order it when I found one here from another member for 20.00!! couldn't go wrong at that price.

    I agree. Personally, I would look into fabrication.

    I found a old bent up bumper, cut in in half and transcribed the profile onto a peice of cardboard to start mocking one up. When I had the desired profile I traced the outline onto 3/8th plate steel and had it cut. All I had to do was grind down the rough edges, weld together, and paint. Pretty cheap and a hella lot stronger than anything I could have bought.
