Hi, as most know...I blew my 305...and my K10 is sitting til' my 350 is built. Well...the other day I took of my bent, and twisted stock front bumper...and my rear bumper. I need some advice...what to put on, make...whatever. I mainly do trails, mud bogs, and some rock climbing when I come across it. I have a 85 K10 on 6 inches of lift, sitting on 35's. So, this is what im thinking of doing. Running no rear bumper, just some 2x4 channel, with a 2 1/2" square reciever traight to my rear fame rails. My truck doesn't have a towing package so this will be my substitute. When it comes to getting recovered from the rear on a trial....I got a big hitch with a 9 inch d-rin on it! And in the front, running a custom built tube'd bumper, welded to my frame...and 2 shackles. (Don't worry about a winch plate...I hate winches, and don't wanna drop $600-up on a winch when I have a billion friends with 4x4's.) I don't wanna run a rear bumper cause I think they are ugly, and all I need is a shackle to pull people out, and I'm tired of my bumper plowing the dirt on steep inclines. Get back with opinions. BTW, my truck is a DD, but Ga. state law doesn't recquire a rear bumper on 1/2 ton and up. And, I live in a little PO-Dunk town, and everyone keeps to themselves. Thanks, and Merry Christmas!
