Have you tried mounting this yet?

Mines not lining up

I have not tried to install it yet. I plan on going to get the truck from the farm this week and hopefully get it installed.

Do you have pictures of what wasn't lining up correctly?

 :tantrum: phone won't give me the image address to attach pics

Here's a link instead

Mounting plates are in frame rails, and up against outboard side of frame

Mounting brackets on the bumper are about 1" wider

You can see I bolted one corner guard mount, which sucks the bumper tight to the frame (passenger side)

On the opposite corner guard mount, you can see I can fit my finger in between the mount and the frame (driver side)

Am I trippin???
Too many paint fumes?
More triangulation?
