anybody know how to raise rear bumper after body lift?

Recommended Posts

I'll tell you what I did on my 93 F150. (REAR Bumper) First I took the bumper off of the bracket. Then, I loosened up the bolts that mount to the frame from the brackets. Then I tilted the bracket up about an inch or so on each side. Then I loosened the bolts on the bumper side of the bracket and re-aligned the bumper. There was still a small gap there, but alot better than after the install.

 

FRONT Bumper: I had a performance accessories body lift that came with a shim to move the front bumper bolts from the stock location up to the correct height. I did have to cut out a little bit of the bottom of the front frame horns to get the bottom of the bumper to move up even with the frame.

 

I hope you can understand what I'm talking about because I don't have any pics. Good Luck.

a quick fix, which i used for years, was putting conveyor belt in the gap. it didn't interfere with the gate coming down and it hid the body lift

What I did for the rear of mine, I cut the portion off that the three bolts holes are in to mount it to the frame, I then flipped those pieces over and welded them up. Lifted the bumper to the correct height for a 3 inch body lift.
