body armor front bumper

So i did my research till i found the bumper i wanted paid way too much for it that was my first mistake . After 3 weeks of waiting it arrived so like anyone with a new part i was ready to put it on . First i took off the stock bumper pretty simple . The next step was to install the new 1 so here i go this thing weighed a ton so i called 4 back up . We wrestled with that thing till we got it close it wasnt going the 6 studs were no where close to the holes they had drilled ,out came the diegrinder opened the holes up .Finaly its on there to start with it was banging the crap outa my fenders so i got in touch with body armor sum help they were told me to adjust it yeah rite! after 2 hours of getting pissed off cause theres very little if any adjustment the driver side didnt move but the pr side droped an inch or more and it busted my grill word to the wise leave the body stock or stay away from body armor
