Genuine Steel Bumper...

Has anyone ever installed one of these things? I think it is impossible to get to the inside bolts without removing the gas tank. Until I figure it out, I will just have to go with the under frame bolts, and the exterior side bolts.
Oh well,

Re: Genuine Steel Bumper...

I've taken off my bumperettes and installed my homemade bumper/tire carrier without taking the tank down, so if all you have to do is slide the nuts in, you should be able to do that. Hold them into a box wrench with some silicone if you have to, and slide the wrench in. If you need to fish the bolts in there because of the bumper design or something, then I dunno. Is that the problem?

....oh, and I wouldn't use anything but *genuine* steel -- the imitation stuff is really not very good. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img] [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Re: Genuine Steel Bumper...

Yeah, they need to slide in on the inside of the bumper, just in front(or behind) the gas tank, and actually need to screw INTO the bumper itself... Well, that was the case last week, this weekend I welded it to the frame I didnt want to deal with the bolt stuff
