Re: Slide in rear bumper tie ins

I am not sure what it is you are describing, but if on the passenger side it is likely an exhaust hanger of some sort.

Re: Slide in rear bumper tie ins

I too am making bumper tie ins, using 2 x 3 steel square tube, and 1 x 2 channel. Nuts strip is 1/2 inch thick bar, drilled and tapped.

I will need to knock out the exhaust hanger tab on right side to get it all to sit flat in the frame. May perhaps drill out the welds holding it.

I will get back to that after I finish my first round of front fender trim. Priorities shifting, dont want my new tires cut up on a fender lip.
