Hi all just wanting to find out the differences between series 1 and 2 XH rear bumpers? And which is best suited to fit up on an XG?

Mate
Early XH bumper bar will bolt straight in using your XG mounting points which consist of your 6 rear stud points and your current 2 side points. If you want to fit the later level you need to make up 3 mounting brackets that go under the rear reflectors. may be still available from ford
. I made my own using 20 gauge steel and 2 rivnuts
gassa

Hey guy's

Like "dahayes", I also have an XG ute that I would like to fit an XH rear bumper to - as I reckon they look 100 times better.

Just wondering if you could make any suggestions as to where I should look for a decent one. I've looked on ebay, and for an unpainted one it costs $800.....Personally I think you'd have to be sniffing a lot of paint thinner to pay that much. I've also spoken to a mate whom works at a Ford dealership in Wagga Wagga and he reckons I could get one for around $300 - which I think is pretty reasonable.

If you could suggest somewhere that sells them at a fair price, that would be much appreciated.

Cheers Brock =)

I got mine for $36.00 At one of the pick a part Wreckers, And a Hayman Reece tow hitch to suit from a scrappers for $50.00 . You just have to keep looking, try using a rabbits foot [4 good luck]. Regards TPVM.
