There’s prolly a load of forums with answers to my question but I need a quick answer!

trying to look for an aftermarket bumper for my 06 and I hate the styles that are currently out there for this year.
What other years will be a direct bolt on for the 06 (aftermarket) and that will fit the body and align with the side panels.

has anyone say, put on a 2011-2014 bumper on a LBZ

thanks for the help!

When you say aftermarket are you meaning the brush guard bumpers or factory?

All I’m looking for is which year Chevy has the same bumper bolt pattern as the 06 no matter which bumper I desire on getting. And all the off-road style bumpers out on the market when you search for veh specific are to bulky where years after 2006 are more desirable make sense?

The 2006 or 2007 classic are the last year with how them bumpers fasten. Now that being said that frame was used till 2010 with the NBS using a different mount system. The interesting thing too is that the 2011 frame design change still uses the 2010 style mounting bracket. So if you would want to use a newer body style bumper you would need to cut your mounts off the frame and use the newer style brackets. The next thing would be how the design would fit with grille and fenders and so forth.
