    If you find one, post where. I looked for one for my Burb and found that many manufacturers skipped the 89-91 FS . I don't know if the pre 89 stuff will fit ofr not, but Hidden Hitch makes them for up to 88.

    I was thinking that the pre-89 would fit the frame, but not around the bumper... I have a custom front bumper on my '84 that allowed me to put a 12" hitch receiver welded into a crossplate of 3/8" steel channel... bent the ends and then bolted it to the frame... it sits up a little high, but its great for a winch mount... loads of clearance...

    Different. Blazers, Suburbans and *crewcab* pickups are the same for 1981-1991. Pickups are the same for 1981-1987. 1988-1991 are the weird years ... regular pickups are the new body style for 1988+, but the other trucks as enumerated above, are the old style. Make sense? The Warn is your only option, AFAIK. Or custom build. -- A
