Has anyone heard of flipping the stock rear bumper upside down to hide the body lift pucks? I have heard you can do this but I'm not sure I want to go taking off the bumper just to find out that it doesn't work.

The bottom side of the bumper has two L shaped mounting brackets that
bolt underneath the rear frame crossmember .

If the brackets were removed (cut off) and ground flush , it would work .

The bottom of the bumper is smaller than the top .

:D

That's too bad. I like cheap and easy fixes. Once I did my body lift I could no longer rest the bottom of my tire on the bumper so now the tailgate is holding up the entire weight of my tire. I am thinking about putting a spacer in between now.

i have a 305/70R/16 on my tailgate....and it is fully resting on my stock
bumper for now. i did weld a 8''x8'' plate to support the tire for now.
still deciding on what rear bumper i want to go with.

The rear bumper will have an increase in height if flipped . Looking at
the mounts , I'm going to pick up another bumper and "adjust" it .

There is not much crush or crash protection either way it is mounted . The
only issue I see is that if it is hit , the flipped bumper may contact the body
and paint . The stock position would only hit the rear frame cross member .

A hand grinder and dremel should make it an easy task . A little flat black
paint to touch up .

:D

The hand grinder worked well & I touched it up with a little paint .

I like the 2 bolts on each end as the mounting area and with the bumper
flipped , there are holes in the right place for rear lights .

It holds my 200 lbs with no problem or flex .

:D
