    Hi,

    My 71k5 has a tow-hitch welded onto the frame and the rear bumper was hacked back on in a way I'm sure was not factory. Does anyone have pics that show a stock bumper and how it's mounted? I'm not even sure mine's stock since the chrome looks new enough to be an aftermarket reproduction.

    I don't have any pics but the bumper was held on by four bolts, 2 bolted to the end of the frame and the other two bolted to / a truss or bar that bolted to the side of the frame.

    Early Classic Enterprises sells a Class IV hitch that hides behind the license plate.... I'm not sure if it includes all the bumper bracketry too but it might be worth checking out if you're trying to clean up the look of the back bumper area.... :thinking:

    I was finally able to check out those hitches. That's much nicer than what I've got. Thanks!
