    I wouldnt reccomend relocating the bumpers, it weakens the mounting design. The are pieces you can buy to cover the openings caused by the body lift but I cant think of the name of te company that make them. I know there was an ad for them in the back of te latest 4WOR.

    If you want to make brackets and move your bumpers I have pictures on my page. I did a simple design that you can see drawings + step by step pictures of.

    Check it out below under "bodylift" (there are alot of pictures so it takes a few minutts to get them all)

    Yeah, check out Espen's site. It really helped me when I did my body lift. The Warn bumper will look just as low as your stock bumper if you do not re-locate it. If you are wanting to cover the gap between the frame and body in the rear wheel wells, you can make your own "lift lips" like I did. They advertise these in the offroad mags for like 50 bucks but I made my own out of some rubber sheets I found at the local hardware store and some plastic (but durable) retainers. They are similar to the retainers that hold up a headliner in some newer GM vehicles I found at Pep Boys. I didn't make some to cover the gaps in the front wheel wells because they don't bother me. Here is a pic:
