Rear Bumper Frame Tie Ins Review

I purchased my first set of rear bumper tie ins. I got them on eBay from gpfabrication.

They're 1/4" thick steel. I like the fact that the provided grade 8 bolts come with tabs welded on them. Holding the tabs make it easy to guide the bolt inside the frame, through an opening at the bottom of the frame. Also, the tabs will rotate into the frame and make the bolts captive for easy nut tightening.

They don't come painted. I sand blasted them with 80 grit Aluminum Oxide. This gives a fairly rough texture.Then sprayed them with Rust-Oleum primer and semigloss paint.

Installation was a breeze. You can see how the tab helps you guide the bolt in the frame.

They were $34.95 + 10.50 for shipping. They were shipped fast. They are very solid.

Is that a stock bumper on those tie ins?

Yes, however it's only temporary until I get my bumper/tire carrier.

Thanks for the review.The main reason I ordered these is the tabs welded to the bolts.Seems like it makes for a real easy install.Thanks again.

Back from the dead, but anybody know if you can still buy these somewhere? I would love to have those nuts with the flags welded on, that way I could avoid drilling through the frame for the top hole on the tie in.
