i hate to do this but here goes

people who do the "bumper mod" are silly, that GAP is there for a reason!
the cab HAS to flex and the bumper will smash into the lower headlight panel if its to close.
the ONLY way i would ever move my bumper up is if i had some daystar polly cab bushings, and even if i did have the polly bushings i would only move it maybe a quater inch at most

If you're in a front impact the odds are your grille and headlights are going to be damaged anyway. I don't see where that is a big deal. Have you looked at the front of a current Explorer or Sport Trac?
