    The last bit of my rear bumper install

    Hey guys, I've got my new 4x4labs bumper almost all the way installed. I am having a hard time getting it the last 1" onto the frame, I have removed all rivets and there is nothing blocking it, its just the friction against the frame (in my opinion) that is keeping it from sliding all the way...
