    its came on my 94 and there was also one on my 92.

    it mounts on the inside of your bumper reinforcement, if you ever have your bumper cover off you see the 2 big round bumper beam bolts in the center about a foot apart front each other (similar to the ones that screw into the bumper brackets).

    the holes for it were predrilled in the reinforcement i bought 2 weeks ago.

    uhhhh I have removed my bumper before and the reinforcement bracket. I did not have one of those. I would throw it in the trash . Lighten up the car. But thats me !!! I dont see the purpose it serves. Maybe some crash protection . Or weight to make it stay in its CD class. I am not sure though .

    Trash it . Put it back . Doesnt really matter to me . haha

    yeah its sitting on the snowmobile trailer, i have no intentions of puttin it back on. i was just courious to know what it was.

    and if its for protection, well now the the front end of the car is made out of taiwan parts it wont matter lol.
