Default 90's model

Okay so while checking things out under the truck, Was checking to see if the POS that owned the truck before me had a trailer light hook up.

I came across to what looks to me a license plate holder and light, behind the bumper on the driver side it also had a light that as soon as i touched it broke loose.

I was wondering if they all came like that, and why?

in the 80's -mid 90's lots of ford trucks were shipped without rear bumpers, unknown reason???? but here in missouri you see lots of late 80's truck running around with bumpers that have the dealer name either stamped or cut through pretty much a basic 4x4 or 4x6 square tube of steel mounted to the rear of the truck. missouri has a bumper law.
