    So the other day I was taking off the middle brackets from two rear bumpers I have to use on my truck and notice they looked different one set is from a 94 Silverado and the others I think are from an earlier year but idk

    Top/left from I guess earlier years and bottom/right from 94 20191008_172637.jpg

    If they both came from pickups, my guess would be 1500 vs 25/3500? I know the front of the frame is slightly different, maybe the rear is too :shrug: That is completely a guess though.

    I do know that truck brackets are different than subruban/tahoe brackets though

    It could have had an aftermarket bumper put on it at some point in it's life. Fey brand bumpers were very close to oem but you would see stuff like the missing welded on nut and a little lighter duty bracket, and the kit would come with a nut and bolt arrangement for that hole. Gm changed stuff along the way also.
