    Yeah...he always ask a lot for his vehicles...he gets it usually too. I have had quite a few people call me looking for parts. I always ask where they got the vehicle. When they tell me from him. I just laugh to myself knowing they overpaid, but at the same time wondering why I can barely sell them for $2000 less. :confused:

    There's a place by Ogden, Ut. that has them. The last time I checked they were $80 a pair I think, without the clevis. It's been awhile since I talked to them though. I can't remember the name of the place off of the top of my head. If I think of it, I'll post it up later.

    ummm....i happen to know where quite a few sets(for the front, no rears right now) are :D , but on your 79 i think you have to modify something on the front of the frame. They'll bolt right onto a 91 though...you may pm dremu on here....he bought a set and had the older frame...pm me if interested with a zip and I can shoot you a price shipped.


    edit: definatley not going to be close to $80 a pair...i think he is referring to boyce equipment....

    LOL. Yeah, I have some expertise with mounting the CUCV shackles to both the 73-80 and 81+ frames.

    Honestly, the "frame extensions" are not ... they're just rectangular tubing. Even the Army says they're not to be used as lift points, i.e. you can't hang the thing under a Chinook by the shackles the way you can with a HMMWV. It's just a foot-long chunk of metal bolted to the frame is all. (They are to be used as tie-downs, onto a 'sled' or a lift platform.)

    I have the dimensions somewhere, but I seem to recall 1.5 x 2" tubing, maybe .187" wall ... don't think it's even 1/4".

    I seem to recall that the back ones fit pretty well, by using some of the factory bumper holes in the frame. Obviously you'll need to cut a hole in your bumper, or use a CUCV bumper, to fit the tube through. Also note that the CUCV bumpers are for the 1981+ frames, and won't fit the 73-80 directly. (I ended up just cutting a hole in my original bumper up front, it was easier than trying to fab bracketry to make the bumper fit.)

    Oh, and I only know about the M1009's, the Blazers; the 1008's (pickups) are different, as they have a step bumper in back ... but prolly the same, different 73-80 than for 81+.

    HTH; feel free to PM me or start another thread -- I think we've hijacked this one enough :) -- for more details.

    Boyce Equipment is who I was talking about. I talked to them about 2 years ago and that's the price he gave me for the shackles.
