XRC rear bumper help

Anyone install this thing? I'm having problems aligning the long bracket in the frame on the passenger side? Anyone have this issue and know how to install it or did u just leave it off? Thanks in advance

It fit in the drivers side but the frame blocks it on te passenger side. Just wondered if anyone actually put it on or left it off? Just don't want this steel bumper to fall of or get jacked up when off roading

I have installed 2 of these bumpers. One on my 97 and one on my brother's 05 Rubicon. What part is not lining up? My brothers went on easy, no issue. My 97 I had to bend the bracket on the passenger side a bit to line it up. I used a small sledge to form it. I thought of leaving it off also but I would never have been happy with that.
