: step pad on rear bumper is rubbing the tailgate

12-01-08, 06:59 PM
I just picked up the ext from the paint shop where I had them paint and install the bumper I drove for hours to get. Now when I open the tailgate, it scrapes the top lip of the step pad. I loosened the hitch, and bumper, then made sure they were at the lowest setting, but it still hits by about a 1/4 of an inch. Has anybody run into this? I could trim the plastic from the pad, because it does have a one inch lip, but I would hate to mess it up.

You shouldnt have to mod anything. Take it back to the body shop so they can re-align it. I see it all the time especially with hoods/fenders.
