The first two are Warn Enforcer bumpers.

The last one is homemade.

Sadly, Warn doesn't make those anymore. They were very tough bumpers though, and it's too bad they were discontinued. If you were going to find one, it would be on craigslist, maybe ebay, or a junk yard.
Bed bars? like a roll bar? the beds on these trucks are all the same from 80-96 and the 97 HD trucks (F250 and 350)

To maximise your trucks sexiness you should install an 80-86 front bumper, along with the 80-86 doghouse. I might be a bit biased though.

On a more serious note, Jeff's bronco graveyard sells two styles of winch bumpers for your year truck.

A few hours with a welder and torch and some scrap steel.

I wish i could. I want to convert the front end but no one has done it, so im abit skeptical on what parts i need and what fab work needs to be done.

Im also not gonna pay 1000+ for a bumper


And 86sixbanger, that things sweet...im no bueno with a welder lol

There are alot of people that have done the front clip conversion. Its a fairly straight forward swap

X2. That's my plan. Bumpers for bull nose trucks look better too.

Will just the bumper from the bullnose readily swap over to the '87 - '91?

No.

If you can't weld then reemburse a buddy who can with beer to do it for you.

Actually looking at some pics of '80 - '86 trucks now, I'm thinking in hindsight that was a dumb question any way. It really is a different configuration bumper that would only work well with the matching sheet metal.

Never mind - carry on...
