    I'm looking for a set of the above stated front bumper guards. If their in a little damaged I'll still be interested as I can get them straightened & re-chromed. It's Christmas, help me out here, please. Thank you !

    No, they are small hard rubber or hard plastic guards. What I'm looking for is a set of the chrome vertical, rubber faced guards. And I thin k I found them from a scrap yard IN Saratoga NY yard. He said he has a old set that's in pretty good shape. but will need to re-chromed like in this pic, You can see the 2 vertical bumper guards clear in the pic. Chevrolet_K5_Blazer_.jpg

    JT what about cutting up a piece of rubber off a truck tire or maybe look on eBay.
    Good luck! GMC

    Call LMC they just might come with new rubber on them.

    !988 Chevrolet Blazers and truck can be tricky. They were assembled using both new 1989 and old 1987 parts. I did find a damaged set one was good, the left side and I found a NOS right side online and had to pay though you know what for it. But if anyone who needs the good condition right side, $30.00 + postage SANY0701.JPG SANY0697.JPG SANY0700.JPG

    That's not a front bumper guard shown on LMC catalog. The part they show and sell are 2 smaller hard rubber guards and if you look at the bumper you'll see that the bumper has a rubber strip all along it. That wasn't a 1988 bumper. That's a 89 or 1990 as my 90 Silverado shows OEM bumper, SANY0608.JPG
