2014 Crooked Bumper

Does anyone know how hard it is to straighten the bumper? Brand new truck and the bumper on both sides looks crooked to me. If I loosen some bolts can I adjust it?



Thanks,
Bruce

If I can't do it I will visit the dealership, however they are two hours away and I don't normally trust dealerships anyway.

You and I both...if it makes you feel any better, when looking at my '13 head on my passenger side sits a bit higher than the driver's side. Slightly noticeable but im waiting to paint my bumpers to realign during installation.

My '11 had the same problem since I brought it home from the dealer. Still sits that way. I guess this is a typical problem with fit and finish at the plant.

Everyone I've seen including mine don't sit parallel. Instead of fudging with it I plan to replace it.. Just not sure with what yet.

Mine appears to sit pretty level (but not perfect) and my brothers 13' sits like mine. There must be some room for adjustment.

There is, It's best to do it with 2-3 people though. When I swapped my chrome bumpers to my PTM bumpers I noticed that there's actually a good bit of adjusting that can be done. It's best to have extra people that way one can stand back and make sure it's straight, another can help hold it in place and someone can be under the truck to tighten up the brackets. It's not difficult but it may take a couple tries to get it right.
