First off I owe a huge thanks to "oldnotslow" for his help over the weekend. He's a true asset to this forum (along with many others).
ANYWAY..... Over the weekend I built a "boltless" bumper bracket for a customer. Now this morning, the customer shows up to have his bumper installed. Her's where the problem came in. At some point in the trucks life, it had been involved in some accidents. As we all know, the first thing to break on a 379 in any sort of frontal collision are those stupid flimsy ears for the bottom 4 bumper bolts. This truck was no different. ALL 4 were gone. I really didn't want to mount this guys custom built bumper with only the top 2 bolts on each side, leaving the bumper prone to vibration and probably cracking. I certainly didn't feel like (or have time to) change both front spring hangers either.So I Came up with a easy solution. A repair "kit", for lack of a better term. Check it out on ebay......item # 121273414331. or pm me for more info.

Next time you want me to spend time providing you information so you can build a product you are going to sell commercially, tell me up front! I don't like the way you went about this.

I honestly had no intention of such a thing. But after we did the repair and built the bumper for our customer, he suggested that we marketed the plates we made to repair his broken mounts and actually had us make a set for his other truck. I'm sorry if It appeared that way. I really do appreciate your help.

I hit a deer with my 379 the other day and am curious about the way you handled the broken bolt holes.
