My truck has a flip down electric actuator. It flips down when I turn on the key and flips up when I turn it off.

Sorry Cris - Iíve been working in the arctic and didnít see your question until today. I used piece of 5Ē x 3/16Ē flat steel and some 3/16 x 1Ē angle iron to make the bumper - welded in some dummy bumper bolt heads - 1/4Ē flat steel for the mounts - took,about 2 hours - painted it then wiped it off with thinners to get the aged steel look. Quite pleased with the finished product

Re: 60-66 rear bumper ideas

I know it is not our year but I saw this truck with a trimmed and tucked rear bumper. He also has the widened rear fenders.

That is my favorite bumper for a street fleetside.
For a work truck I like the tough look of a Barden.

I will agree with that. I have a Barden on my short fleet trailer!

Clyde did you have to modify your bumper brackets any? I installed my 67 bumper and the top is alot further away from the bed than the bottom. I even bought new bumper brackets.

I didnít modify anything, also got the 67-72 bumper brackets and it fit like a glove. I also did a hidden hitch (CPP) and a flip up license holder.

Re: 60-66 rear bumper ideas

Here is mine. It was one of those step bumpers that wrapped around to the side of the bed and bolted to it. I chopped it and tucked it. My truck is a 3 on tree and didnt have backup lights and I didnít want the round ones under taillights so I made my own version. I also installed Toyota Tacoma license plate lights.
