Its not you... Its a combination of the drivers side body bushing being cracked, wore-out and lower than the passenger side, plus, the bumper is about 1/4" lower on that side at the moment. When I pull the bumper off and finish it, it will be slotted slightly to even stuff out. I made sure I was taking measurements to the frame and bumper from the ground, that way stuff doesnt come out all caddywomp... When it goes back on, it will be even.

Bumper has been done for a week and a half... Been busy as hell, and still am... But here is a pic for you guys, Looks even better in person...



Hopefully going to pick up a 4.10 pig tomorrow, and if I do, Ill toss it in soon. Right now Im focused on a new project, my 89 F250 is getting a 94 IDI turbo and ZF5. Plan is to enjoy the B2 for the summer, and bust into it with some more radical upgrades later on. Ill post some wheeling pics and stuff as I go along though.
