    i see that now, is it supposed to be against it? I dont see a hole for the threaded mount or is it just that far off?

    Yes its suppose to touch. when you tighten the 6 bolts on the front bumper horns this is how it ends up. I was able to loosen the front nuts all the way out and get the bottom 4 started then impact them all down but it causes the whole bumper to angle forward and down leaving the very top horizontal bar of the bumper nowhere near level or looking good.

    Bummer, when leads time increase for whatever reason it always seems workmanship decrease. But i would of brought this up to the shop that sold you this first(maybe ya did i dont know).

    Was your truck ever in a accident or the front frame section modifyed or repaired?

    I have this same bumper on my truck and absolutely love it! I did have to elongate the lower mount holes slightly. That being said the frame horns on Tacomas are super flimsy just take a look at them. They are crazy thin hence why people reinforce them when they throw on a winch. Also keep in mind that this bumper is super long so it's putting a lot of leverage on the frame horns when you only have the 6 bolts mounted on top so it actually flexing the the thin plates and dropping the bottom back down. I always have mounted the bottom first then the top six bolt's and have had zero issues. Anyway here is my bumper below I started the process of going to a TC 2" kit today so the truck is currently being pulled apart... Hope this helps....

    Is it safe to assume that you cannot run a sway bar with the type b bumper?
