    so i might be by myself here cuz i cant find anyone with the same problem that i constantly have. my truck is used as a work truck so it has to get the job done no matter what, but every time i get it a little muddy the front bumper wants to come off!!! this is my second bumper and dealerships only answer is to buy an aftermarket steel ( from them of course 2500$ . mechanically its an amazing truck but the body is driving me insane. I went through the front end and removed all the clips and replaced with bolts tonight, hopefully it makes the full day!! If anyone else has experienced this please let me know how you fixed it. thanks

    I'm of no help. But if you get a new bumper go ARB or something for $1000
