Default Front bumper gap?

How do i close the giant gap that i can almost throw a cat through on my front bumper that seems to be crooked? Ive seen alot of trucks on here that seem to have no gap at all. How do i do this?

unbolt the bumper bolts, push bumper up, hold bumper up while tightening bolts.

The nuts are 19mm and/or 3/4". both worth. 21 or 22mm are rear bumper bolts.
