On a non-BL'd truck, there really isn't an option to raise the bumper higher. You can drille out or dremel the bumper-side holes bigger to manipulate the height, but it won't move much.

Bodylifted tucks has TONS of adjustability. First, get your bolts and nuts setup as pictured below (namely, bumper side with the nuts facing OUTWARD). Loosen all of them up a little bit, move your bumper into place, tighten nuts. Done. The frame-side bolts are the vertical adjustments, but all of the nuts play a role in alignment.
