I was just looking ast STL's front bumper, it looks like its got a small gap at the front and from the sides it looks like its also moved forward about an inch?

Look at the bumper gap, its bigger at the front then tight as it goes round the edges, but the bumper also looks like its moved forward just over an inch. I'm curious if he has moved it forward and up himself or if its the result of a new set of bumper hangers.
I need some bumper brackets made up unless i can find someone that has them here in the UK

The bumper brackets do push the bumper forward some. What you're seeing with STL's truck can be seen in alot of my older pics....bumper out of adjustment. simple as that...loosen up the bumper to outer bumper bracket bolts and that problem is cured. Also, the bodylift brackets for the front bumper are very weak....bend very easily. I cured that using beefier custom made bumper brackets out of 1/4" carbon steel as opposed to PA's smaller 3/16 and weaker material. STL's may be bent up...alot of BL'd trucks bumpers with tight bumper gaps like Myke's end up looking like that.


Bent bumper brackets:


Fixed and proper bumper brackets:





OH...btw....pic request fufilled....above is DisturbedESV's '08 w/ 3" bodylift, 15x8's, and 33x12.50's. Overall, 08+ 4x4's sit about an inch to an inch and a half lower than 07 and older models.

That's one of my fav trucks on here!!
3" body lift and 33's, bet you get rubbing on full lock?

What width are the Tyres?

Looks perfect, but I bet this is another case of 3" lift and 2.5"'s
of torsion crank!!

;-)
