Warn Winch Bumper?

First... is thing a factory Warn bumper? Supposedly came off of a 76 or 79 Cherokee.

And second, would any of you be kind enough to get me some pictures and possibly some dimensions on the brackets that mount the Warn bumper to the frame? The mounting brackets were cut to get the bumper off of the previous truck, but it looks like I can just get new brackets and bolt them to the old holes, dont see any spots where they were welded to the bumper or anything.

Thanks

Dunno, unless I missed a pic I don't even see a bumper. Just angle iron and brackets.
I've had a factory Warn on my 73 J4000 and have one on my present 72 J4000 but those close up you posted doesn't tell me anything. If you send me your email addy I can send you a pic of my truck and a diagram of the bumper and brackets from the parts manual.

I have that same bumper. Not sure what it is, but if anyone wants it feel free to make an offer.

Yeah that looks like Warn bumper but not sure it's from a FSJ though? The deck plates on a FSJ bumper taper to near nothing at the outer bumper ends. Not sure those plates would clear the valance?
I'll email you the diagram.

The bumper may or may not be the correct one to be called "factory".
The mount (angle iron) is certainly not correct for the factory bumper.

Warn offered (may still do) the bumper as one unit and the mount kits as a separate package. They also offered the complete kit (bumper and mount kit) also.
One bumper kit may fit many different rigs, mount kits were unique to make/model/year of the truck.

So what you have, as near as I can tell is a generic Warn bumper (check the width, as they had a few different widths) and a incomplete home brew mount kit.

Not of great value to a FSJ person as the mount kit is what made the Warn bumper a FSJ Warn bumper.
