Has anyone installed Ben’s no cut rear bumper and had any problems? I am founding out that the crossmember needs to be in good shape. I’m not faulting anyone or throwing shade at Ben. If anything, and many of you know this, I could just be a total moron and can’t get all right. The previous owner of my trick jackknifed something which dented and probably twisted the crossmember. This has prevented an easy installation of the no cut bumper. I had no idea a jacked up crossmember would have this effect.
I have ground down and beat with a BFH to get the base bumper on. But it’s crooked, and I don’t have room to put the bottom two bolts on the hitch in. They hit the crossmember and won’t let the nuts get tight.
I’ll include some pics of how the bumper is sitting crooked and the two bolts I am talking about. The top down picture shows the right side (in the picture) of the bumper is pushed in enough to be crooked which is also making the hitch crooked.

Take the bumper off and correct the cross member.
My frame weld nuts were misaligned in the holes of the frame (common problem). No fault of the BIOR bumper. Bumper wasn’t going on until I corrected the truck.

Ben has shorter bolts for that very issue. Give him a call or email.

You could also run to Home Depot and grab a box of washers (1/2" I believe) and shim the head out until the bolt does not have excess thread sticking through.
