F-series rear step bumper fit E-series vans?

Just as the title says... Wanted to see if an F-series step bumper will fit an E350 rear??

It won't just bolt on. It should be adaptable however.

Think it's the fronts that are interchangeable, but I don't know for sure.

Re: F-series rear step bumper fit E-series vans?

My front bumper is a Warn PU bumper, and the brackets had to be modified to fit my van.

It is my understanding that the rears have similar, flat frame ends to mount the bumpers and the spacing is different. So, you should be able to make a flat plate with both sets of holes to bolt it up. I haven't really seen this, or tried it. A trip the local wrecking yard with a tape measure should answer the question.

Does anyone know if the F Series front bumper will work if you change the mounting points on the 08+ E350?

Re: F-series rear step bumper fit E-series vans?

Definitely not a direct fit.

I'm in the thick of a retrofit, adapting a heavy plate Ruenel rear bumper scavenged from my '88 F350, cutting off the old, making and relocating new brackets so it will fit onto my '95 Econoline. Most guys won't ever go to that amount of trouble to do this, as it's a lot of heavy steel-type fabrication work.

I have not measured all the variations, but I can say for a fact, that the early F-series trucks, 1980 thru at least 1998, all have narrower frame rails than our vans. depending on how you plan to mount the bumper, this will make a difference. The E-line's frame rails are (outside-to-outside) 42", most 150 and all 250-350 F-series trucks 4-3/4" narrower at 37-1/4". My '88 truck has C-channel ends. I'm not sure of the frame rail ends on later models. My E-line has flat plate flanges welded to the ends of it's frame rails, both front and rear.

For the front, not only are the frame rails narrower on the trucks, but it appears that the overhang, the distance between the wheel opening and bumper face is shorter on the van. Also, our vans look more flat faced, compared to the later trucks that when viewed from above, are less flat, and have more of a larger radiused nose, which will also effect fitment. But you'd have to take a closer look at that.

I hope that helps
