    rear bumper bracket - need pic please

    building a custom rear bumper but want to use the original bracketing method.

    I read up on the existing posts so am aware there 2 bolts per mount (1 bottom that threads to frame and 1 top that threads to bracket (?), but could not find any pics of the actually brackets.

    Anyone have rear bumper bracket pics so I can recreate similar?

    1.5" x 3/16 square tubing works pretty well..cut at steep angle and weld in a captive nut..

    any weird sizing going on with that back bolt (into frame)?

    I've tried a few sizes (assume metric) but can't get a good match to the threads in that body frame hole?

    The mounting bolts are M12X1.25 IIRC.

    Thats what I just weasured... nothing odd about them. might need to chase the threads with a tap or something, they tend to take a healthy dose of the elements considering where they are. Ace Hardwrare carries new grade 8 ones if I recall.

    got 'em as recommended and they are perfect. There was a bit of gunk in there which is why it felt like the wrong thread size.

    Thanks!
