To the first, yes, but they also made narrow body 88s.

To the second, as is typical there are exceptions. Narrow bodies had chromed steel bumpers. 91 and later wide bodies had painted fiberglass bumpers. 88-90 wide bodies had heavy aluminum bumpers, some of which were painted (black are all that I have seen) and some were chromed. For a couple of years I thought Blue Thunder had steel bumpers, but somebody here in 2008 or so pointed out that it was chromed aluminum, not steel.
