Recently bought a M5 pickup, and am looking for a rear bumper.

From looking at pictures both front and rear bumpers appear the same.

Can someone let me know if this is the case or not.

thank you

You'll also need the curved bumper support bars, same as the front. Use 4 pieces of 2x2 heavy angle iron about 2" long to mount the supports to the bottom side of the frame (item 1805-12, p/n 665042).

Yes, it's rust.... but it's not my truck! It's a picture of Bob Schmidt's M5 that i took so that I could make some brackets that looked like the originals.

Bob has an original Caravan Top for his M5 and was kind enough to let me make measurements of it so that I could build a replica.
See http://www.studegarage.com/Caravan.htm (great MIDI sound file there, too)

The gas cap is fine, thank you very much. If it ever warms up here again, I'll paint it to match the car.
