Suburban bumpers

My oe chrome bumpers are pretty beat up and need repair/replacement.

Are painted bumpers available for Suburbans? Obviously the front is the same as trucks but the rear is different, correct?

Or is it the same as a fleetside?

I am thinking to keep with the off-road theme that I might otherwise go custom.

Rear is the same also. Well, at least the sport bumper is. The only difference is the mounting brackets.

Re: Suburban bumpers

I bought that one and the front one also painted.

I am going to reinforce them and build offroad style bumpers.

If your Suburban is a '66 they have bumpers for those on sale also

Re: Suburban bumpers

I saw those too, they also have the correct bumper guards in chrome too wonder if they fit the stock bumper or the repro. How is the thickness of the metal? Im guessing pretty thin based on the price.
