Rock guards!
Keep any stray rocks from your tires flying up and chipping the tailgate.

You can check out post 80 in my build and see a sorta just ok picture of the lmc ones I installed. They help cover up the big gap between the bumper and the bed.

Thanks for the info. Beautiful truck you built!

About the gold bowtie in the grille, did you buy it or paint the old one? Looks better than new.

Thanks. The bowtie was part of the NOS grille I had been saving.

Correct. You slip it in and bolt it down.

Re: What are these parts?

Thanks. I just installed this bumper as a replacement for an ancient step bumper. Like you, I am not real happy with the gap, so may eventually modify the brackets.
