Should work fine, all the hardware should be the same. I was under the impression those openings were for tow hooks that may or may not have actually been installed on the frame from the factory. You can find those bumpers on some '95 broncos (and i think even 94), on trucks with the EB package.

they will work as the frame is the exact same frame for each. The original purpose was for extra cooling for the big tubo disels. everyone liked the look so the Bronco came with them...

no, not tow hooks... havack is correct, they are for the intercooler on the powerstroke trucks, which then became an option on all of the trucks. if you look at them up close you'll see that they aren't really in the ideal spot for a frame hook anyway... they're too far inward

Havack is right, but I have seen that since the holes are there, some have just cut a little further outward (holes are inside of the frame), and they can mount tow hooks sideways to the frame.
