Default Roll Pan

I have some questions about a Roll Pan for a 95 D21. Did the trucks ever come that way from the factory or is it strictly aftermarket? Does anybody know the legallity of them? I like the look they give the truck but plan on adding a tow bar down the road, will I still be able to do that? Any pictures of a Roll Pan that you have? I have found several on line but wonder if anybody has fabricated one.

Most of the trucks did not come with the rear bumper from the factory, and the bumpers were added at the dealer. The roll pan was removed to fit the deluxe bumper (black or chrome), the standard or double tube bumpers fit with the roll pan, see the brochure page below, pic 9:

http://nicoclub.com/archives/1991-ni...-brochure.html

When I had my 87 that came with the deluxe bumper and I removed it for a double tube Smittybilt bumper, a friend of a friend that worked at a Nissan dealer gave me a roll pan that was removed from a truck when they put a bumper on it.

this is the OEM "roll pan" I got this from a junk yard truck and put it on my current 93, my truck came with a deluxe bumper but it was crap so I removed it, with bumper and without pics below, when going to the OEM roll pan, you also need to pick up the tag light that mount above the tag, they plug right in under the bed:

only pic I have of the rear bumper, you can see how it covers where the roll pan would go:

I've got that little valence on mine.

I guess I could get up off my ass and go take a picture.

Be right back....

OK, first off, I do not have a stock Nissan bumper. I've got this FEY bumper that is a popular aftermarket item, sold on Amazon:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0007VM3DE/

It still wanted to rub, so I messaged the bumper so that it bent in a little early. It doesn't show.





Here are some older, existing pictures of my bumper area:





So, does the valance help?

Well, here's what it looked like without the valance. You decide.

it helps, with the Smittybilt bumper I had on my 87, the way the mounting brackets were designed I could keep the valance, it also cleaned up the rear when I put the 3" body lift on it.

The valance I got from the dealer was black, I never bothered to paint it, you can see it in this pic:

In Florida you are supposed to have some kind of protection. Most cops won't call you on it, but if they need a reason to pull you it will do.

I've read you are supposed to have a bumper down here but I have yet to have a problem
