HELP with front bumper

OK, i put my front bumper on and now there is a space gap between the top of the bumper and the bottom of the headlights. I have pulled the bumper brackets as far as they go and this is as high as the bumper goes.

So heres my question: is there a piece of some sort the goes there? And if there is, what is it called?

In some fords i see that there is a piece of plastic between the bumper and headlights, but i don't know what they're called.

HERE IS A LINK TO THE PIC: (i dont know how to put the pic directly on the page)

You you just copy the IMG code photobucket gives you into your post on here.

Are you talking about the red piece between the headlight/grill and bumper?

That piece is missing on my truck, but the gap is so large, that the green piece wouldnt make that much of a difference.
