What a joke. I would have sent that back. $1200 for something that doesn't fit? I'm sorry to hear this. This is why it's better to have a local fab shop build it. Companies like this don't give a crap about the Ranger's. It's not like it's the most popular mini truck in the US or anything.

Also 1 thing I don't like about them is that they don't increase clearance at all. It almost looks like the stock bumper sits higher than these. Could just be the camera angels?

it is quite a bit lower but only in the front sits about as low as the crossmeber where the skid plate ties on but after i adjusted it, its not that bad and by the wheels you get about an inch instead of like 6 or what ever stalk was once i get my lift on and shit its gonna look perty sweet was a hell of time fiiting it and stuff but for 1000$ bumper looks perty good to me lol
