front bumper cut outs

ok im rebuliding a 1996 f250 that was totaled out. i have the state inspector coming out next monday and cannot find a bumper. i can find ones of a 150 without the cut outs. what i want to know is does the diesel need the cut outs for cooling ot are they there just for looks. the truck is stock 2wd with no intercooler please any info would be appreciated needed asap

the radiator does extend down to the holes, but if you need a bumper by monday, you can get away with it. in the summer though if you are gonna tow heavy loads up 7 percent grades i would keep an eye on the temp gauge.

You should be fine without the cutouts. Most aftermarket bumpers I have seen don't have them.

you should be fine, i keep my radiator completely covered all winter long with a special cover until it hits 50 degrees, just keep and eye on the engine temp light and guage, i have yet to see one of these overheat, knock on wood
