Body lift rear bumper pictures

I just finished installing my body lift yesterday and I would like to get some feed back on what to do with my rear bumper. If i lift it with the bumper brackets then my hitch is lower and my tips will look terrible. So can I get some pictures on what you did to solve this problem. Thanks

Here is what I did: http://memimage.cardomain.net/member...57_50_full.jpg

I think it looks ok the way it is.... if you dont like the gap you can stick some kinda metal in there, like diamond plate or something.... do you have any pics from the bcak?

I would suggest moving the bumper up, relocating the hitch up three or so inches and then redoing or dumping the exhaust.

I wouldnt relocate th hitch or exaust... thats just me... I would maybe paint the peice above the bumper to match the body.... maybe evern get a color matching bumper.... nobody would notice the gap if thats what you are worried about.

I dont like that stainless piece there at all.

I would bring the bumper up and not worry about the gap between the trailer hitch before i left it with the stainless.
your going to have to cut the hitch and re-weld it higher, and rebend the pipes.
