Help Identify this bumper

I picked up this bumper and have a couple of questions:
1) Does anyone know who made this bumper?
2) I am having hard time getting it to sit on the frame rails. It seems like you need to cut the two small flanges on each side of the frame rail to get it to slide far enough back to line up with the bolt holes. Does that seem right?
3)Was there a difference between the 94,95, 97 model year bumpers and fitting?

Thanks!

Looks kind of like this one from the camel trophy trucks.

I think it is a [maybe homemade] knock off of them because the CT trucks had a different brushbar and never had the holes for the 93/94 turn signals.

Thanks for the replies. Do you think I could cut out the small tabs to get it to slide back far enough?
It may be a knock off, but who ever built it, built really nice and couldnt beat the price.

Sure, series trucks did not have the frame under horns (for lack of a better term) so I would just trim the bumper lower tab to make it fit.

Looks like a nice bumper.
