Bumper raise

Recommended Posts

Well got the bumper raised. It had to be raised a total of 3" to get it where the space is less than a 1/4" from bumper to grill.. It came out good..

I used 3" square tubing to do the raise... The grill assembly just snaps off then you cut the black spacer off the bottom of the grill. You have to notch the lower bracket thats attached to the frame about 1/2-3/4". You then notch the bumper itself where the tow hooks come thru to allow for the frame to fit in. We took the bracket that attaches to the plate on the side of the bumper and flipped them to the opposite side, only down side to that is you only use one bolt instead of two but it works just as good. The only cutting that you really do is on the lower bracket on the frame and on the bracket on the bumper. You only notch the bracket on the bumper to allow room for the frame.. On DP they only used 2" tubing but I like it tucked tight with minimal gap.. I also used a 2 1/2 shim for the bottom bracket so both bolts that hold bumper are stable.. Now I need to figure how I'm going to do my tow hooks.. Shouldn't be a problem though.. In pic below is where the 3" spacer goes, It has the 2" on it but I ended up using 3"

It's mounted that low because body is mounted about 2 in. higher on hd trucks than half ton trucks but the bumpers are in the same position.

Looks good Randy.

Thanks guys.. I need to lower it about 1/2 inch though.. I started thinkin about when it gets at an angle, don't want the bumper to smash up the grille. I only have about 1/16 of an inch between the two, so I gots to do it again and get it a little lower for some clearance with the grille..
