Working on this 74 D100 step side for over a year now. Did a bunch of suspension things, rewiring, a little body repair to include a roof and a fuel tank relocation. Was looking at being a little different so I though some louvers would look good.

Also dabbling in some ideas on a rear bumper. Been told the 67-69 Barracuda bumpers are good candidates. Just have to figure out the mounting brackets.

Not a big fan of the louvers. The bumper I think could be made to work, flatten the peak in the middle and maybe trim back the ends shorter with a not such a point on the end more of a curve. twocents

Are the 67 & 68 Barracuda bumpers that easy to find? Would surprise me! Gene

Same bumper used for the front and rear I believe.
