Look at the PA instructions...there's a wiring harness hold down on the block...it's in the instructions to unbolt it. Unbolt it, lift the truck, try and bolt it back up, if you can't, leave it. Instructions say it.

I did that, was unable to bolt it back up, left it hangin' there, and the battery cable was still pretty dang tight...so I broke the harness retainer behind the a/c compressor and that cured my issue.

very frustrating !
i have two options.
A: wait and see if summit send another bracket piece with correct holes, and try again.
B: run what i got and weld the bracket into the correct spot.
mine was the same way i bleave the notch end goes down. mine went right on

Ory Muse's Summit BL came with two of the same bumper backets for his. Just so you know. 2nd guy to get two of the same brackets.

Looks good. bodylines are a little off...tighten the front of the bed down some more. Looks like bed alignment needs addressed, but it could just be the picture using flash...idk.


Glad it all finally got done.

a better day time pic,
summit sent me new umperbrackets that are correct! they really did a good job keeping me happy.I have not put them in so i still have a goofy back bumper.
i am really loving the bl stance. if anyone is on the fence if they should bl, i say do it! you will not regret it even if it is a major pain with installation

I tried to drop the back piping on my catback, but the tubes were bonded to each other and i did not want to cut it off, instead i slanted the jba tip up and as you can see burned the tip for style points, i really like it!
