The holes you have circled in blue were for the straight axle rivets, not sure about the holes in the fenders because my 37 does not have them. Does the rubber that goes around the bumper supports bolt in there or do they just slide on like the 37's.

Leakie The overhead console? That is from a early 2000's Silverado. I used to have a Silverado with one and thought it was handy, so when I found one at a swap meet I grabbed it. It fit the profile of the roof pretty good, the only mod I did was to put two screws up thru the center of the console to draw up to the roof a bit better.

Too Many Projects I don't know what the holes in the bottom of the fender are for. Possibly a strap to prevent flexing and cracking.

The bumper brackets are only held by the 2 bolts thru the side of the frame hat.

Seems to me there is a brace bolted thru the small forward holes in the flat frame section. I'll look at mine tomorrow.

Here is a pic of my brackets as I was chopping 3" off to move the bumper back for reference to the hole spacing.

I know these holes have nothing to do with the bumper brkts. So ur saying that there are brackets that bolt to the side of the frame "hat" and then bolts to the bottom of the fenders??

I thought the bumper brackets bolted to the side of the frame hat.

I must be missing something hsre
