Loosen the 4 nuts that hold the bumper to the frame, push up on bumper, tighten bolts.


If that doesn't get it right enough for you, remove the bumper and enlarge the holes on the frame.

It makes it so much easier if you have another person to help out. Have them hold the bumper and you get down and losen and tighen the bolts.

If you dont have any help you could use saw horses.
