Mine would adjust for that. But you need to make sure all of the bolts are loose.

Question did you put it on or you payed someone

If you put it on then the bracket that goes inside the frame could be in wrong and that is what's pushing it up

If you didn't put the bumper on then I guess you will have to take it off to make sure it was done right

Ya, I put it no myself, The bracket on the inside of the frame is have facing down, That is the L is going down. From the botton of the tailgate to the bumper I have like 1/4inch, is that correct?

Smitty doesn't have the best QC. My bumper only clears by about 1/4". I have smacked it on the rocks hard several times which have flexed it into the body. My rear corners both have chips/body deflection.

I have heard of people putting a couple thick washers between the body mounts and body on the rear to get a little more clearance.... Or you could grind the bumper down to fit better.
