front tube bumper

I have a 95 yj. I bought a smittybilt chrome tube bumper for the front. Has any body had any issues installing theres. My stock bumper bolted on top and bottom. This after market bumper bolts on to the side of the frame. Its also about a 1/4 of an inch from being wide enough to slide on the frame. Any ideas thanks.

My guess is it was poorly made?...

My bumper (made by some guy in California) fit perfectly, so I can't say much about the one you bought.

my rugged ridge one had to be persuaded a little but it bolted top and bottom. use a hammer to bend the bracket but use a piece of wood in between so u dont scratch it.
