There's four bolts behind the bumper, loosen them up and move the bumper up then tighten the bolts down and stand back and look at your work.

crawl underneath your truck

2 bolts (on each side) hold a bracket onto the frame

and another 4 bolts (2 on each side) hold your bumper to those brackets

just loosen the nuts you do not have to take the bolts all the way off

adjust to your liking

re-tighten said bolts GRADUALLY



you can either loosen the bolts on the frame to the brackets

or from the brackets to the bumper....try not to do both at the same time (it makes it rather difficult)

hint: its a lot easier with 2 people

Take a hammer and hit the bracket up while its loosened.. make sure its actually getting it as high as it can go - might be rusted to the bolts and/or frame

it does look a bit low. Mine has a bit of a gap, but not bad. I put mine on by myself and it is as high as she goes.

just snug one side, then snug the other...then take a look.
