I have a chance to pick up the front and rear tube bumpers off a jeep wrangler for 60 bucks just wondering if they will fit on my 93 explorer

explorers are 70" wide
wranglers are 66" wide

Im mostly looking at the frame widths if it will just bolt up with a few new holes

and im mostly just wanting the rear bumper

If you have a grinder and welder, they can be modified to fit.

They probably won't bolt up securely otherwise though.

Frame rails widths are whats most important. There is only a little bit of difference in the two vehicles frame widths. You can cut the ends off at the turn (if there is one), or cut a notch, heat em up, & bend the ends to make them wider, and weld the notch. Make some boxed caps for the frame rails, and bolt the bumpers to the caps thru the frame rails.

Anime is right. There is other ways, I just threw one example out there. :)
