    73' blaze/// I was wondering if anybody had some plans, pics, or measurements for bumpers front & back, I don't need anything fancy, just something to use for recovery. Please /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    6" channel. 3/8" steel mounting plates on the back to bolt to the frame. You may need to make new brackets angling off the sides of the frame. Then just cut a couple 3/8" pieces of steel into tabs and drill a 1/2" hole through em and weld em to the bumper and install clevis.

    checkout Missouri Offroad Outfitters and take a close look at thier bumpers. I plan on making something similar to the front in a week or two, it doesn't appear That I'll need anything exotic tool-wise.
