Default Tre Paul Bodylift brackets Help Needed

Hey folks, finally got the bodylift done and my installer has run into a problem, The brackets I received from Tre don't mount up correctly, Are we missing something, help needed so that I can align my bumper right please. here are some pics, are 2wd and 4wd two different brackets? I have a 01 2wd with a upgraded 04 bumper/valance, thanks any help appreciated.

here are the bracket bolts that don't go all the way down into the hole from the front


a closer look at driver side bracket bolt


pic from behind the driver side valance. notice right lower hole bolt with no nut, that's where it stops. so bracket does not reach


same picture with a light shined on the bracket


passenger side behind valance

Yea, if you don't have them on upside down, you have them on the wrong side. Mine took a little persuading when I got them from Tre, but the DO fit. Good luck, let us know.
