    anyone ever adjusted/centered the front bumper on their first gen's?? i noticed the other day that my damn bumper was too far to the driver side, so i need to adjust it and slide it over some.

    I did this on my 2000. I saw it was to far to one side, so I bought some washers, and shimed it until it was perfectly centered.

    Well, On mine, I removed the bumper, and repositioned it on the other side of the mounts, then used washers to move it one way or the other. You should be able to see the bumper mounts from under the truck.

    ok...went and looked again....looks like there may be a slight adjustment on the 2 main bars under there, but i need about 3/4 of an inch to the passenger side. i may have to unbolt the bumper and do as you did man. now that i got to looking at it...it looks ridiculous as hell(cant believe i just noticed a week or so ago:rolleyes:), so i gotta get it back even. im gonna crawl under there this wknd and see whats up!

    got my bumper lined back up today.......took the brackets off.....they were bent a little, apparently where someone hit the side of the bumper. starightened the brackets out,then got the wifey to put some ass:D into the driver side to shift it a bit, then i shimmed with a couple of washers on the pass side between the bracket and frame..........tightened it all up...............looks alot better now! its almost perfectly even now.

    also...................got my rear shocks flipped the right way now too.
