    [​IMG] hey guys I'm replacing my pan with a bumper. The bumper I have is from a Tahoe/suburban. The bumper seems to be too narrow and the top plastic is different from the trucks. So my question is, is the SUV bumper more narrow than the truck bumper on a NBS?? Thanks

    The rear support structure is different and the top pad is different. The chrome part is the same.

    The stepside and SUV bumpers are more narrow than the fleetsides.

    Thanks guys. Wish I would've researched this before I bought the bumper.

    Brackets are different too. The SUV brackets aren't as tall and the bolt holes are in different locations.

    Unless someone put an suv bumper on my parts truck before I junked it they were the same. Which it is completely possible but it had the top pad of a truck
