3" BL question.

How come somtimes I see trucks with really bad bumper gaps, and other trucks it seems that the BL doesnt cause the body and the bumper to have a bigger gap? Why is this?

yes the PA kit comes with brackets to lift your bumpers up 3" with the body some people dont put them on because after that. the bumpers are basically just for looks they wont help you in a crash

i think the brackets should be made stronger myself. if you made some better brackets you would be fine.
