Powerwagon 46 will become famous soon enough
Default Front Bumper Adjustment

I've seen several comments on the forum regarding the need to adjust the location of the front bumper but I don't recall anyone actually doing it. Can the front bumper be adjusted in the cross car direction? I know I'm being a bit picky but mine is slightly off location.

Thanks!

Had mine done by the dealer, took two visits, tell them to take it to their body shop, not one their regular mechanics. Its still probably not going to be perfect just so you know..

Finally did a hand wash on my truck this weekend and realized that my front bumper wasn't on straight either. It's probably 3/8-1/2 inch lower on the right than the left. I was hoping it was something easy I could adjust myself, but haven't had time to crawl under and look at it.

I bet if you have the time and energy you can do it yourself. If it turns into a nightmare take it to the dealer. I looked under there before i had them adjust it, seems adjustable. Have not inspected under there since the adjustment. Hate taking my truck to the dealer. On my third trip to fix a Evap leak. Now they say i need a new gas tank, there is a bad sealing surface.

So i pick up my truck today after they tell me they need to order a gas tank. I do a quick walk around to check for damage. On my painted front bumper there is a foot print on it. Plus a minor scratch. They admitted it was the mechanics foot print , he slipped when crawling into the engine bay. They buffed it out, so all is ok. Seven trips to the dealer, only 600 miles. It has to get better. Still love my truck.
