What the HELL are you talking about? There are no torx bolts on the bumper of ANY S10. They are on the seat belts, but no bumper bolts. Bumper bolts are just standard bolts.

Um, please keep your mouth shut if you dont know what you are talking about. First generation s-10's have carriage bolts holding the bumper on, and all second gen trucks have torx bolts holding the bumper on, unless someone took them out and replaced them

Re: size torx is the s10 bumper?

A carriage bolt still has a nut on the backside and is NOT a torx. 2nd gen trucks DO NOT ALL have torx bolts. Neither of my 98's did and my 00 Xtreme didn't. Unless GM did something stupid on the 94-97 trucks(very possible). I have never seen torx bolts on ANY bumper bolt of ANY vehicle.

Yeah actually I just took of my '98 Blazer's bumper just a few hours ago here's a pic

It was just 6 regular bolts, 2 from the top, and 2 you undo from the bottom. that's it! End of discussion

94-97 S-10s have 2 T-50s on the top of the front bumper and 2 T-50s on the bottom. I'm not sure about the rear bumper.

And, since I ran into the same problem... don't get you a little cheap T-50 torx wrench, it won't work. You will need a breaker bar, but just drill the SOBs out! Now, I have to wait a couple more days before I can finish what I started.

Re: size torx is the s10 bumper?

it is a t50, they look just like your seat belt bolts. if you use a cheap tool, sometimes it strips the tool. You can use a good set of vise grips, too, but i have a 95 noma and just had the bumper off last week, and there were 2 on top and 2 on bottom.
