I'm thinking I'm a little stupid, do I have to cut the fender to make it fit, or is there something else I'm missing. Any help please

I thought it was supposed to line up under the fender. Can only get 3 of 6 bolts to line up.

It's definitely a TJ bumper. I double and triple checked.

The metal fender is stopping the bumper from lining up with the bolt holes.

One side fits and the other doesn't. Hope you don't have frame damage that you dot know about. Or mabey someone replaced body panels and there out of alignment.

Also what brand of bumper is that. Just so we can look into fitment issues.

Measure from the very outside to outside of the bumper. If it just under 67"( and I mean just 66.9") it's a TJ model. If its over 67" then it's a JK model.

Aftermarket bumper

It really looks like either you have an unknown frame damage issue. I would personally chop the fenders to make it "look" straight and accept all bolts. Plus it already has lights on it if you have to get rid of the fender lights. Just my .02

No model number on the bumper itself. All the packaging had the right # on it.

Will have to measure to make sure. Thanks for the tip cheepjeep

Just measured. It was 58.5 inches end to end. Looks like I'm gonna have to invest in a Dremel.

That's weird. They don't have a model on there site that has that dimension. I would give them a call just to confirm that it's the right bumper.

Was gonna take a Dremel to the jeep, not the bumper. Just trim a little under the turn signal to make it fit

Put a level on your frame across both rails and measure down from the panel to the frame on both sides. Just curious to see if both sides are they same. It just my OCD kicking in but I would like to know if its the bumper or the jeep.

The bumper looks awesome. I think that's what I'm gonna do, cut the fenders. Thanks for all the input guys.

I will take plenty of pics

So. Called paramount restyling today. Found out its not damage or bent frame on the jeep, it's the bumper.

They informed me the bumper was made for jeeps with flat fenders.
Nowhere, anywhere did I see that. Did a little modding to the jeep, now it fits like a glove.
