    I want to get rid of my MONSTER GARAGE type rear bumper and put
    a normal bumper on. I like how some people put 88 and up bumpers on their
    73-87 model trucks. I just trying to find a site or vendor who has pic's with many options or styles. :thumb:

    I don't think anyone here has ever posted that they bought the LMC truck chrome bumpers, but from the description, they should be a lot more durable than the foreign stuff that you typically end up with when buyhing chrome parts.

    They really aren't that pricey IMO for what you are getting. A stock bumpers chrome plating can't be beat either though, as long as it's not scratched and didn't come from a place that used salt on the roads, they should last for darn near ever. GM didn't chrome the backside of their bumpers, that's typically why they rot out.

    whatever you do, use a good primer on the back side of the bumper to prevent rust. It's well worth it
