Leveling Bumper

The pickup was half a bubble off (just like us), so that’s what we set the bumper to match. Except then the sides of the bumper didn’t line up with the body. Keep adjusting until all the gaps and distances are to your liking, then torque the nuts down for good. Aluminess redesigned the support brackets since they wouldn’t work with this prototype bumper, so we’re not sure what your bumper will come with. We made our own supports out of 3⁄8-inch aluminum plate and bolted them to the unused holes in the bumper’s side plates.
