Another Ironman bumper

this is on a 87 Chevy dually, which I am trying to get the owner to sell me soon
and yes I know the steel is rusty, will be sand blasted prior to paint

you can't tow with it


It should look a whole bunch better with paint and the reverse lights installed. So what's your price Rick?

Pat-You know your first in line.
As far as the looks, what kinda bumper do you put on a one ton dually? Thinking that fits that truck. Big, ugly, heavy, bullet proof-yup, thats the truck. Plus those idiots that cant stop are in for some damage!

But is it bolted to the frame or just to the old bumper hidden behind it?

I'm pretty sure he just tack welded it to the factory rollpan - cause clearly a big dually like that never had a bumper in the first place

Well I hoping its bolted. By the looks, it may all be just tacked-Just kidding ironman. He has to finish, but we get the picture. The old stock bumper was hit by an idiot that couldnt stop(thats the story anyway). We all know ironmans work, and I must say when its done, it will be exactly what I wanted.
