What should i do about the bumber?

i have a 1999 Ford Ranger XLT and when i got the truck they raised it 6" body lift is what they said! but definitely doesnt look like a 6" lift, but when they raised it the bumper had to be lowered and there is a gap between the front bumper and the grille. What would you guys recommend doing to make it look better? btw i dont know **** about trucks or what to do or anything... go ahead and flame if you want lol but thanks for any advice.

I don't have a lift, but I think most people that do just take the mounting brackets off and bend them to the desired height. Someone with more knowledge will eventually chime in and correct me.

Looks like you have a 3" bodylift and trailmaster(?) lift kit. They make bumper brackets to raise your bumper after a bodylift. Trepaul on here makes some good ones.

Either modify the factory brackets or buy the body lift bumper brackets. Big words scare me.
