All pro Baja bumper

So I got my all pro Baja bumper about a month ago I was impressed with the quality and everything is good except for one thing. Either I'm stupid and can't bolt this thing on Right but I've tried 10+ times and it comes out looking the same. It hangs down In the front and won't line up with my trucks body lines at all, here's my concern is the bumper warped? I just ordered the two skids to go with it and I'm worried they won't line up?? Anyone have this issue please chime in or any suggestions to help me fix it all pro wants nothing to do with the problem claiming it's the angle I'm taking the picture at, any help would be great! Thanks guys!!

Hmm...100% sure it's pushed all the way "back" on the mounting plates? I'll have to take a look at mine in the morning. I'm pretty sure the holes are elongated so that movement is available if need be.

I did however need to use a sledgehammer to get mine on. Not sure how snug your fit was?

I had similar issues with a plate bumper. Try loosening the back bolts, then take a floor jack with a 2x4 and jack up on the the bumper till its where you want it. Then crank down on the bolts you loosened. If that doesn't work you can always elongate your holes and do the same thing.

Nope. Nothing. I did cut to 2 tiny "hooks" that were inside the frame rails out. It's been so long since ice done it, it's hard to remember lol. Sorry.

But no...it just took a whole lot of persuading with the sledgy to go on. Mostly because the powdercoat thickness. It's over 1/16" thick, so a total of an 1/8" for both sides. Which is considerable considering these things are made in a jig and "shouldn't" move. The bumpers do have a fair amount of flex to them though.

Has the truck ever been in an accident?
I can tell that the bumper to truck fitment is off. The tubes are supposed to be parallel with the body lines.
It would definitely help if you could post some pictures of the rear mounts of the bumper (the 2 on the side that extend from the body mount).

And your right, with it sagging that much the skid plates won't line up worth a rats ass. Especially the 2 individual ones on either side right behind the LCA. I actually have a aluminum spacer in mine because it doesn't line up anymore all that well from being bent.

I think once you figure out what the sagging problem is, everything will fit together perfectly. And I have a pretty good idea of what it is, I just need to see a picture of your frame rails and the mounting plates on your bumper. I have a funny feeling they aren't quiet the same as mine. And also the 2 holes on either side of the frame rail on the front. Correct me if I'm wrong but there are 2 on the side. And 2 on the bottom?
