it bolts up to the dash perfect and to the connection to the steering rack perfect, but its a half inch or so short of touching the firewall grommet i installed...

im not really sure what to do about it...

i could modify it to maybe slide forward into the engine bay further by making the notch that goes into the steering assembly bigger. then i would also need to modify where it attatches to the dash beam to move forward...

or i could try to make the firewall grommet come back into the cabin further somehow to make up the distance...

i dunno, anybody else ran into this or have any advise???
what'd you do here? you never explained

and i love the bumper, im also running post-face lift bumper w/o the lower beam
