Default Front bumper adjustment?

Here is how my front bumper sits. It doesn't appear to have been in any accidents. Nothing seems bent or out of place underneath. Is there adjustment in the bumper?

There are 6 bolts that hold it to the frame and the two lateral supports that run from the frame to the outer edges of the bumper.

I'd just loosen the ones on the frame mount. They can be gotten to if you open the hood. and reach inside of the frame rails.

The two lateral supports can be reached to loosen them from under the fender.

Why the horns are mounted to the DS lateral I'll never know.

Thanks, I'll give that a try tomorrow. And I'll let you know how I make out.

Mine looked similar to that after I hit a deer. I got underneath and loosen all the bolts I could find. Then since mine was pushed in some I wrapped a chain around the bumper and a tree and gently bumped it back into place, tightened the bolts and Walla, just like new except for a couple of scratch marks on the top of the bumper that the left headlight mostly hides.
