Front bumpers interchangeable?

All:

Will a NAS front bumper fit my ROW? Were all years the same fitment or did they ever change?

I did a search but couldn't find anything.

Thanks,

Paul.

Paul, Defenders changed very little in 30 years. Doors, hoods, etc. will basically all be interchangeable.

I realize he's asking for his ROW90, but isn't there a difference on the 110? NAS v. ROW?

They will still line up. You may be thinking of the large A/C bump-out?

They all will fit.

Pre 1990ish, the bumpers were galvanized. Then they were painted black. 93 NAS 110 and 94 NAS D90 have oval marker lights in the bumper. 95/97 NAS do not. Somewhere toward the end of the run of defenders, the bumpers got end caps.

I think a 2x4, a tree and a strap and some judicious backing up will get yours 99% straight. That is not a big bend at all.

Series bumpers fit on defenders, but they are narrower and stick out a bit more. Defender bumpers need to be trimmed to fit on a series.

Thanks guys! Local fab shop was able to straighten the original (galvanized) unit, and it's at the sand blasters now, then off for powder coating so it matches the brush guard.

Cheers,

Paul.
