Need a new front bumper that is not chrome


Recommended Posts

I need a front bumper for a 1978 U model ( same bumper as R model).  But I want one that is not chrome and can only find the chrome ones for sale. Any ideas besides junkyard?

I belive Hendrickson made them but doubt they're still avalible. Hendrickson was an OEM supplier for original Mack bumpers so quality would be right. Personally I have no ideas where to pick one up excepting ebay. They show up there from time to time. Also keep in mind there were two very similar styles of R-model bumper before and after 1979 (or so). The difference was in the mounting holes pattern since different front spring brackets were used. I don't know which one would correctly fit a U-model probably the early one and the most options I saw avalible (in chrome) were for the later series trucks.

If nothing else, you could buy a chrome one and sandblast the chrome off and paint it.
