You are barely getting away with that. No other color could pull that off. IMO this is a big down fall to BL. I would have on but chose suspension lift due to this reason. Whats up with the front? How did you raise the front bumper? Or was that left as is also?

mine is an LE - so it looks completely stock. i wasn't a huge fan of adding a bl, but with how low this truck sits on the frame and the limited options for suspension lifts, if you go off-road at all, then the 2" of BL sure helps for tire clearance and saving the body panels.

No, I agree. It is fuctional. Its just sucks no one make some kind of bolt on bracket, to move your bumper up.

well, the stock rear bumper isn't worth saving imo - its made from tinfoil. giving me the excuse to buy custom! (will be done soon)

I have a piece of lawn edging in mine. I might paint it silver to match, and also get a light strip that will fill in some of the gap.

So if it is the LE...does that mean you have the one piece front bumper? How does the body lift work with them? Pics?

Thats not too bad at all, your setup is very similar to mine as far as lift and tire size. looks good! Are you happy with the bumper where it is or does it look out of place/ too low?

...and a pic with the bumper raised and hitch reciever would be great if you can figure out how to get it on the computer!

the bumper isn't raised, but I'll try to remember to take a pic of the rear tomorrow and post it up.

I'll eventually go with an aftermarket rear bumper with built in hitch, so I didn't waste any time or effort to raise the rear bumper.

I moved my rear bumper up only 1". This way it is even between the bottom of the tailgate and the hitch. I did this by unbolting the bumper from the bumper support and put 1" spacers (thick washers from Home Depot) between them. I will try and get some good pix this weekend to post.

Is there any reason why no company makes a BL that includes bumper brackets for our trucks? When I did the BL on my S10, it came with everything including front and rear bumper brackets.
