Rear Swing Gate is striking my new bumpers Swing Arm Post....any suggestions

Morning All,

just mounted Body Armor's 63" JK-2393 rear bumper (with swing arm post) along with the Body Armor Roof Rack Base. Here's the issue, if I want to open the rear swing gate or tail gate all the way to the locking position, it strikes the swing arm post on the the point where I've put a small dent in the tail gate (first dent on the new '12 2DR Rubi).

Any there a way to modify the opening range of the back gate? or will I have to go so far as to have a machinist remove the swing arm post from the new bumper?

will take some pics later (when the sun comes up). The Body Armor Roof Rack is a solid beast, very happy with the rack! just need to find a solution for opening my rear tail gate door...

Did you ever find a solution to this?
Does having their rear bumper otherwise make for a better rack mounting in the back?
