My truck got rear ended in my drive way by a utility truck. No really damage but a gash in my rear bumper. They decided to pay for a new rear bumper from Gm ($630.80). Now my truck is a 95 stepside that shows it's age well and I wanted some ideas on replaceing the bumper. My friends are trying to talk me into a roll pan and custom tube bumper set up. I was going to try to find a used stock bumper but that's been harder that you would think. So any suggestions or pics of what you have done would be greatly appreciated. Also my truck just got a 3" body lift installed, if that has any effect.

roll pans look ugly with body lifts, especially on the obs :imo

Roll pan and save the rear side steps :rocking:

Actually ebay sounds like the best option for a used bumper. I've seen a few lifted trucks with roll pans. They don't look that bad...

there are plenty of lifted trucks that look really good with roll pans. But, they don't have body lifts. If you put a roll pan on a truck that has a body lift, those spring hangers are going to be very visible. A lot more than the stock bumper. I just think it's an eyesore when i see a body lifted truck with a roll pan, with the spring hangers and the spare tire hanging low, right under it.

Thanks for the opinions. I never thought of what you would see with out the bumper being on. So off to ebay to find a bumper.
