Tweaked frame?

All right i just got looking at this Effin bumper and it's crooked to the one side too! Can anyone tell me if there's anyway to tell if I have a tweaked frame? I measured from the front frame to the wheels on both sides and it was the exact same. Anyone have an idea?? I'm starting to worry that the po may have wrecked it!

Any info would be great as to what to look for to tell if it is tweaked.
Thanks!

It's just weird the whole bumper just seems shifted to the one side, the stock bumper seamed fine if I remember correctly

The bumper brackets might be bent, mine are.
You can put the truck on jack stands on a flat, level surface and measure up to the frame on both sides.

I'll get one tomorrow, it was a pain in the ass to get the bolt holes to line up, had to elongate the holes like 3/8 inch, and one side sits higher than the other

Because my stock bumper seamed fine, and the body lines all seem good, I hope it just the bumper I'm worried

The front ends of these trucks are not symmetrical. its been a topic of discussion among those with aftermarket bumpers. just one of the quarks on these trucks. friend had similar things with his elite. extensive measurements proved a square frame and bumper but the bumper sticks out more on one side.
