Thumbs up full bumper on an XC ute

Kinda in the wrong section but the ute section is more about new utes.

Ive seen on the old HQ's that sometimes people put on full bumpers from sedans on to the utes. I think it looks really good.

What do you guys think it looks like?


Has anyone done it .... is much work involved?

Re: full bumper on an XC ute

I was going to do this on my old XC ute. I've seen it on an XB, and I thought it basically bolted up. The bumper is off the wagon, not the sedan.

It also restricts access to the wheel well under the tray... But I really like the look of it!

'67 Mustang V8 4sp... what fun to drive!

Re: full bumper on an XC ute

You will need to to look at the spare wheel issue and
possibly make up a panel or maybe use a wagon beaver panel.
The mounting holes for the brackets are different, slightly greater
distance between the top and lower bolt holes on the wagon.(15mm?)
I've just bought a wagon bar to do the same on my XC ute but
haven't fitted it up yet. One other point is the original bumpers
on the ute also have a mount on the bottom side of the quarter panel,
though I probably wont use that point if I can as any little tap on
the rear might also damage the quarter panel.
Hope you figure it out because I'm still scratching my head
as to the best way of going about it.
Good Luck! and please post when you sort it out.

Re: full bumper on an XC ute

have you got pics of the back of an XC ute?, as i'm not sure if i'm picturing the rear bumper design correctly. I am also struggling to picture it looking better, but some pics would certainly prove the reasoning for a full bumper.
