how should i raise my front bumper?

when i was putting in my body lift i needed to raise my front bumper but i never did it so my truck looks funny. the reason i never lifted my front bumper was because in my body lift kit the instructions say to take some notches out of my frame. I did not want to do that. It came with 2 steel plates to raise the bumper but without notching my frame i cant put it on unless i mod the steel plates. I am thinking about doing that but i dont want to do it wrong. Also, those still plates are real thick. I dont have a problem with getting out the drill but i just want to do it right, ya mean? anybody else experience this problem? what should i do?

93, i noticed how you have a 3 inch body and you raise your front and back bumpers. how did you do that?

I used the brackets the kit comes with for the front

wierd for the 93-94 kits in that they don't come with rear bumper brackets, but the bumpers are the same mounting type from 93-?? cuz I got a set of rear bumper lift brackets for a 2001 or 2002 ranger and they worked fine with a little massaging of course to make it look perfect

did the instructions instruct you to take notches out of the frame to raise the front bumper?

it might have, the only thing I did concerning the front bumper is I think only one of the 2 holes lined up and looked good to me, so me and a buddy put a bolt in each one of those holes and held up the bumper to where it looked good, then drilled a new hole in the bumper bracket
