    Not much you can do. Conventional mounts are dying, well not the mounts the trucks they are on and there is no conventional allowed after 1994 so either trim your bumper to try to make it look better or live with it until your next truck which will have a mount that doesn't effect the bumper mounting position.

    as mentioned, 1994 all manufacturer's stopped building conventional mounts due to the increased damage they would cause in the event of a collision. fisher's always mounted in front of the bumper, but meyer and westerns mounted behind the bumper. the bumper can be reinstalled, but it would be gapped out a pretty significant distance from its original location.

    personally, i perfer the old conventional mounts (i'm probably in the minority on this). here's my F350 with conventional western mount. the stock bumper looked awful when i put it back on and was that much more to worry about when backing up in tight turns, so i left it off. i need to fab up a custom bumper.
