Didnt think they even sold the bumper mount anymore... Should have been a condensor mount cooler setup.. If they are having problems getting the bumper back in might be a issue with the support brackets for the bumper.

The horseshoe bracket on the drivers side must be removed and the rock shield installed

yes it is a condenser mount oil cooler im sorry if i was unclear in my original post. when i had truck in the shop it was gettin new head gaskets he pulled the motor out the front of the truck at the time i also had the bpd fully bulletproof kit along with a truck bed full of other preventative matainance/go fast parts when i came to pick it up i noticed that the bumper was noticeably to low he said it hiting the oil lines on the drivers side and it wont go up any higher so after posting this yesterday JC read my post from Bullet Proof Diesel and e mailed me to call him. So I did and he said they do them all the time and have no problems with the bumper.

thanks for the quick response JC and Bullet proof diesel
