Default Endura Brackets

Guru's
Is it OK to use hide away frame brackets if I dont plan to use hideaways?

Pretty sure that would work? The endura bumper still mounts to the brackets in the same way with or without hideaways.. the hideaway brackets are just beefier than standard

Are you using them incase you swap to hide away in the future or because your not finding a good pair of standard bracket's ? Would bet most wouldn't even notice it looking at the finished car.

Hide a way brackets are ugly..and looked so rigged..people cant believe they where stock..

Chrome bumper brackets are the same as non hide a way...are not hard to get and cost 50 bucks..the hide a way brkts bring 250+ easy..

They will fit if you have an endura, all the grill work etc fits to the endura, no relation to the frame-to-bumper brackets. They may not work with a 69 chrome bumper though as they are taller and the regular brackets have fitment holes for both bumpers.
