Icon5 Raise bumper??

I know this is probably a stupid question, but how do you raise the front bumper? I hate that gap in between the lights and the bumper.

You loosen the bumper bolts then raise it up. I can take a couple pictures tomorrow if you don't have them by them.

I think i get it guys. Thanks for looking up that thread, it helped, but the pictures would have helped if they were still there. When i get done doing this to my truck, i will post up some pictures for you guys. I also need to post some pictures of my back bumper since i just got it herculined.

Alright so i tried to raise it today, and it went up some but i still have an inch left. Any way to go up further? My guess would be to try and loosen the bolts more then push up. I will try some more tomorrow. If anyone has some suggestions, let me know.

I have tried this too and cannot get the gap smaller than 1". If you look in the 1"BL thread a member posted how he raised his bumper when he lifted his truck. You have to remove the bumper and notch the hole the bolt goes in vertically. This allows more movement up. You have to take off the bumper to do this though. I hope that makes sense.
