Let’s face it, pickup trucks were designed as workers, not performance vehicles or potential hot rods. And one of the things that often reinforce this realization is the bulky stock step bumpers hanging below most of their tailgates. But, for those who never plan on pulling trailers or constantly climbing in and out of the cargo bed, don’t fret as there’s a visually pleasing, relatively easy-to-install alternative. It’s called a rolled pan, and it’s traditionally styled after one of the cleanest customizing tricks in the book. Losing the stock rear bumper, and continuing the body line around the tail end not only provides a much smoother look, it shortens rear overhang as well.

Rolled rear pans have been around for decades and have steadily become one of the most popular pickup modifications out there. Pans are offered by countless aftermarket suppliers and are manufactured in both steel and fiberglass configurations. That said, here we’re going to take a look at one high-quality offering from one of our favorite aftermarket suppliers – LMC Truck.

As we said earlier, installing a rolled pan is pretty easy. In fact, the most difficult part would be painting, or having it painted to match your existing finish. But, when it comes to actual wrench twisting, the hardest part about installing LMC Truck’s all-steel roll pan is stripping off the original rear bumper.

For those who want to accomplish the task quickly and easily it’s just a matter of following the simple instructions. For those who save instructions for last, the job is straightforward enough to be successful as well, even if it does take a second try. So, let’s take a look at LMC Truck’s all-steel rolled pan and just how easy their installation really is.
