Anyone ever see a stepbumper like this ?

Im planing on putting a class 4 or 5 hitch on my 72 I knew my bumper was a little strange but not like this . Its built like a tank all 1/4 inch plates and 3/16 square tube from my measurements and its mounted in the front and rear frame holes the hitch would mount too. So Id have to remove it completely and devise brackets for the bumper. Thinking I may just bring it to my welding guy who does custom fabrications . Have him weld in some more square stock and add a 2 receiver tube and call it a day .

Re: Anyone ever see a stepbumper like this ?

That is interesting, almost like you can pull the bumper out to make a step up to the open tailgate.

Im thinking it was for a long in bed camper. The bumper had a swing down step on it too. PO insisted on keeping it

Id keep it just for the uniqueness factor. You used to see them often by me years ago.

Re: Anyone ever see a stepbumper like this ?

I got a similar one with a '67 Custom Camper that I used to have. It slides out to become the step for whatever length of slide-in camper you have in the bed. Biggest difference is that mine slid into the frame rails.

I guess there was multible configurations. I may slide it out the full 3 or 4 feet and say it's an anti tailgater bumper.

Re: Anyone ever see a stepbumper like this ?

There was a slide-out bumper mount offered, I think, as an RPO option. It was how it was done back then for campers with tail section

This shows the one that my '71 Custom Camper had
