Mystery holes in G506 Bumper

Post by signsup » Wed May 09, 2018 5:45 pm

About 3/8" holes about 1 3/4" apart fright on the top center of the bumper. Presume they are Bubba holes, but wanted to check here first before I filled them in. Presume not winch related, not a winch ID truck. Was an airport truck, maybe snow plow or salt truck or something related. Maybe some sort of signage or light for visual aid.

Just let me know if they are supposed to be there or not and I'll go from there.

I'll hang up and listen.

They are holes to attach a L bracket for the starting crank handle.
