Defender bumper on Series III?

How easily does a ('97) Defender 90 front bumper bolt up to a Series III? Thanks.

Easy enough.

I am 99% sure it just bolts up but you may have to trim the lower mounts to make them a little narrower. I forget if it is this way or the other way around (series bumper on a D90). Of course the D90 bumper is an inch or two wider.

I sold my stock bumper to a 73 88" owner, and it was a "plug and play",
(well sometimes, down here we use spanner 71... Big hammer and big cold chisel... ).

I just put a Rockware D-90 bumper on my series 3. Just bolted it right on. Bumpers that use the sleeve under the frame horns won't work unless you do a little welding. Do a search under Rockware and you will found where I aske dthe same question and people posted pics.
