early style bumper
« on: Jul 12, 2002, 04:29:55 AM »
okay i know that there are some, but when i was first looking they all sucked.  :puke:
the only one i found for a 1982 pick-up that was set up for a winch was lame with big thin walled tubes.
i knew i would have bashed it to bits within two trips of owning it.
i saw chris's truck at AP and bought the same.  after some welding and added material it's on and looks good. 8)
but i didn't have a welder, and they wouldn't do the mods for me.(i offered to pay for it)
lucky i have friends that do. ;)
what i'm getting at is that if there was a bumper that was built well, excepted a winch,and bolted to my truck without mods..............  i would have paid more for it.

I'll second that.
A good lookin functional bumper (F/R) for the 79-83 would be nice. Not sure if this is really a Marlin type project but maybe someone will pick up the idea and run.

I'll third that   (OK, that was corny).

I agree, there is nothing available for my 82.

I'm going to have to have one custom made and will probably cost quite a bit of money.

I'd buy a pre-fab bumper, one that utilized the 4 existing mounting holes and two additional mounts to the body mounts.. or had alternative mounting option.  

The existing 4 simply won't cut it.

good call Hawaii500!

take care...

i circled the mounting.  i welded 1" steel to the front crossmember and drilled and taped it 1/2-13.  then i welded 1/4x2 to the top of the bumper that has holes for the existing mounts on the top of the frame near the radiator.  and then i welded diamond plate to the bottom and at the bottom i welded some angle so that i could bolt it to the bottom of the front cross member.(i used 4  3/8 bolts)  
i haven't mounted my winch to it yet but i have been pulled off of rocks by it and i've load tested it other ways.(pulling stumps and such)  i'm comfortable with the strength.  i'll know for sure when i put my 8,000 warn on it.

looks nice
    all i did was modify a pece of 6"x 6" 1/4" thick square tubing held it where i wanted it and welded it on .....

    there was'nt many places to mount it to so for added strenth i welded 2 peaces of metal from the bumber to the body..... whitch means that my frame and my bumper and my body are all one peice now... wich is ok for me cence i dont plan on takeing the cab off any time soon
