Sagging bumper disease

Almost every OBS I see has a sagging bumper... including mine so, what is the permanent solution to this? If there is one? Thanks!

There are some stiffener brackets that are supposed to help. There was a post on it in one of the forums on another site (I will have to search for it). Cheers!

Your bolts are loose, back them off a bit, have some help and push it up, tighten the piss out of it

Here's the thread from the "Nation": Sagging front bumpers - PowerStrokeNation : Ford Powerstroke Diesel Forum

and in case this forum won't show it, here's the LMC page that has the reinforcement brackets (which come in the mounting kit or sold individually). Factory parts are F2TZ-17A792-A for right and F2TZ-17A792-B for left.

Cheers!

Its kinda sad how cheesy the front bumper attachment is on these trucks. Nice thick steel plate that bolts to the frame, but then it bolts to a thin chrome plated bumper with no braces or reinforcements...
Those $20 braces from LMC look like the way to go. I may have to give that a whirl on the OEM bumper I have waiting to go on my truck.

I had one with a twist in it, couldn't get it right with new brackets. The RH side was down, so I shimmed the RH lower mount to correct it. It's keeping a straight face so far.
