Default Bumper help

So I got this front bumper assembly with brackets in all, but it doesn't want to go on with the tow hooks... The brackets aren't allowing it to go past the tow hooks. Anyone know the best way to put it on? Do I have to take the tow hooks off or disassemble the bumper and put thebrackets on first? Any help is appreciated lol

I took my hooks off when I did my body lift, but thats normal. Try taking them off, put the bumper on and see if they will fit then. Sometimes the brackets can be shaved a bit but if it needs alot I suggest you just leave the hooks off. Also check and make sure its the right bumper, There are alot of variations in them

I know on my truck the bolts were adjustable to align the bumper. Take pics, add more details of your truck and upload them to this thread. Its easier to see what the problem is, than just hear it
