  1. You're right about the shorty bumper. Also, with the bumper pushed against the tire (in the case of a collision with a deer or other animal) the steering was greatly hindered. I think that this might be why GMC used plastic bumper extensions to make a full bumper on some of their trucks. 

    Some of the very small shorty bumpers were used to save on weight also.

    also an old time driver told me that the companys got a huge discount from the insurance company for the use of the shorty bumper
