    if you want to cover the gap you must raise the bumper, re drill mounting holes, or make up a brakit to raise it.

    you might be able to find something from lmc or a company that sells body lifts to do so.

    or just make something to cover the gap and leave the bumper where it is

    I had my friend make some brackets to relocate mine. Then he welded the bumper braces to the frame and attached them back to the bumpers so the ends of the bumper were still supported. Here is the finished product.

    Ill post a few pics of mine if you want, so far I only did the rear bumper, but I am taking the body lift off so I am not doing the front. Nevertheless, on the rear I cut the ends of the frame horns off, welded them up 3 inches higher. Then reinforced the welds, and for the brackets that go to ends of the bumper to frame I had drilled new holes. Pretty simple deal but came out fine and you cant even tell. You wont however find brackets from any company that will fix the problem, and the way the bumper is shaped makes it almost impossible to do anything but cut and weld.

    Here is a diagram that I quickly just drew up on paint. A few people have asked me about this.

    If you are a good metal worker (mainly good with a torch and grinder) it should come out and look factory to the unknowing eye.

    I could understand that....if the torch cuts aren't nearly perfect it makes it not only difficult to weld back up, but hard to get the horn lined back up strait.

    if you just want the gap filled . take the filler out under the grill. then cut in in half from top to bottom. and add in a 3" section of thin tin and weld it up /sandi t / and paint it. bam done. also grab a 3" section for the rear to fill that gap. just spot weld it to the back or pop rivit it along the top lip.
