Rear Bumper Fit

Hey guys,

My buddy has a Reunel Rear Bumper off his F350 that he is willing to give to me. Does anyone know if it bolt up to my 97 E350 or would I need to make some modifications? I havent had a chance to get any measurements from the bumper. Thought someone here might know the answer.

Pretty sure it won’t bolt right up.

It won’t be a direct fit. The rear frame horns are totally different. But I’d shoot Buckstop and email, and ask what it would cost to have them change the mounting brackets. Or just DIY if it’s not the towing bumper.

Thanks guys. I figured it wouldn’t mount that easy.

My 2003 F350 has open C channel frame rails that the bumper mounts to. The van frame has horns welded to the ends of the frame rails. It won't bolt on. But as carrieb said if your not going to tow with it, you could get it to work fairly easy.

If it has slide into the frame rail legs of the bumper just have the legs cut off and mount/weld appropriately drilled plates to the legs. I am pretty sure the bumper is not a tow hitch bumper. The factory tow hitch on you van should work. If you need less than an inch to clear the hitch you can space /shim it down. Have the shop gusset the plates to the bumper legs and your done. I love free accessories!

Forgot to add: I bought a 2 year old C. List front 2001 F150 Ranch Hand.com winch bumper. The body side returns where too long. I cut 2 inches off both sides. Made my plates and added flat bar to run under the van frame for more winch pulling support. You would not know it was a half ton pickup winch bumper if I did not tell you. I price the bumper out at the time it was $1500.00 for a mere 10th of the cost at $150.00.
Well almost free!
