Default Front frame rail width

Can anyone tell me if the front frame rail spacing changes over the years on the 40's? I just measured the rails on mine and they are 29 inches apart. Problem is, that I just bought a front bumper from Hawkdriver on Mud, and the bottom mounting points on his bumper is 28 7/8 inches. I can grind a bit to make it fit, but I'm curious if later models changed the dimensions. I think he test fits his bumpers on a '74...

This is the vertical part of the front frame rails, below the tow hooks, measured on the outside of the rails...

Thx!
Chris

Statistics show that 95% of all Jeeps ever built are still on the road. The other 5% made it home.
