    Default What are these on the underside of the rear bumper bar?

    Not my '80 but mine has them too, there are two of them on the underside of the rear bumper bar. They must be there for a reason.

    Edit - got this answer elsewhere.

    Yes - Those were designed for a conventional tow timber.

    AIM UPC 14L - P/N 14028582 - Rear Tow Bracket.

    Early cars were recalled to add these. The later cars got them installed at factory. Prevents damage from tow slings when used with towing timber

    I don't know what they are but, I have the exact same thing under my '82. I've just been crawling around under the rear end and was kind of wondering the same thing.
