    I had a guy offer me a winch bumper that he had custom fabbed for his 80's Blazer (fullsize of course). He offered to sell it to me for $100. It's a real nice bumper, but I don't know if it will fit a 1970 K5. Anyone out there know if it will?
    Thanks,
    Andrew

    The bumper may fit the frame BUT remember our first gens have a curved front grill and the other guys have a straight or flat grill. So the ends of the bumper will be sticking out alot futher away from the grill than the center will be. may look a littel goffy...???

    Thanks for the help, I had overlooked that fact. I will check it out and get some measurements and try to visualize how it will look. Anyone else with anymore help would be appreciated.
    Thanks,

    the brackets will have to be mod'd. my buddy had a 69 chevy with a winch bumper and mounted it on a 88 burb. had to use a 1/4" plate to make it touch the frame horns. With a quick swing of a torch or a sawzall you could have it mounted to the inside of the frame rails pretty easly.
