    I need to know the dimensions of the a stock rear bumper for a '71 fj40. I need to fab a new one and want to use oem tail lights. Pictures would be a big plus.
    I still haven't figured out what the po was trying to do the factory bumper. They hacked it all up. I guess a torch was easier than a wrench. ::)
    Thanks,
    Steve

    I dont think 71 40s have bumpers they just have bumperets and a tow hitch in the middle,at least that is how mine was.

    Yup, no bumper just the little hoop shaped bumberetts. The tail lights hang off brakets that bolt to the back frame cross member. If they cut up the frame that would really suck. SOR.COM has pictures of them.

    Here is a stock 71 rear end. I measured out my rear frame member, which is what I assume you mean. 49 5/8 inches wide by 4 1/4 inches tall and 2 1/2 deep. Lemme know if you need more details.
