1975 Ford F100 Styleside Rear Bumper Brackets

Hello everyone. I am a new owner of a 1975 Ford Ranger XLT. This is my first new old truck and I am very much looking forward to fixing her up. I need some help though as I find myself somewhat in over my head.

I need the rear bumper brackets for my truck and they are for the non-step bumper. I have not been able to find anything on these. Any information I would greatly appreciate!

Welcome to FTE.

Do you intend to install a factory-style "contour" bumper as pictured below? If so, here is a thread for info: http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/11...-brackets.html

I appreciate it! Looks like I will be having a difficult time finding these brackets. Not entirely sure what the guy did with them in the first place.

Check with Dennis Carpenter (1967-1979 | Dennis Carpenter Ford Restoration Parts) I was perusing their newest catalog and recall seeing them offered.

About $120 or so.

Do you know if the 63-72 brackets would work? They look similar I think!

I have a pair of Bump styleside brackets and the top mounting holes (one side) measure 9 inches on-center. Same as a Dentside (I went out and measured my truck).

The difference btwn Bumps and most Dents is that the former has a narrower frame. Now, assuming that a Dent-specific bumper is used, the inner holes should be about one inch outboard of the frame width and then the outer holes are nine inches outboard of them.

Btw, the OEM license plate lights, caps, and housing/pigtails are a rare find in the 'yards. Go price 'em at Dennis Carpenter and I'll check back after ya pick your jaw off the floor.

If ever wanting to tow, start hunting the yards for a big Bronco frame-mounted, Class III receiver hitch.
