5. Check for proper clearance and alignment, adjust as needed.

6. Tighten the hardware in the following order:

  • Lower bumper mounting points.
  • Rear bumper to bumper struts
  • Bumper struts to the frame of the vehicle.

NOTE: The Rear Bumper struts may not sit 100% flush with the frame of the vehicle.  This is normal due to the curvature of the frame tube. Do not overtighten the hardware between the struts and the frame to prevent deforming the vehicle’s frame.
