Default Rear bumper adjustment?

It looks like at one time my rear bumper was hit pushing the bumper up and interfering with the tail gate opening and closing. I see all the different bolt holes underneath is that a way to adjust the bumper for up or down? The bumper right now is covering the whole for access to lower the spare tire. Thatís how Highup a bumper sits. Can I just take the bumper off and use different mounting holes? To lowered. Looking at the bolts it doesnít look like itís been banned can I just take the bumper off and use different mounting holes? To lowered. Looking at the bolts it doesnít look like itís been bent.

Does the bumper interfere with the gate now?

Yes it rubs it when you lower it and it doesnít sit in the hinge right. Also the crank hole for the spare tire is not even visable. the bumper is pretty much pressed against the bottom of the tailgate.

My first guess is that the bumper brackets are bent (or the bumper could be bent.) From the picture, it doesn't look like there's a set of bolt holes to drop the bracket.

The different holes are for the different models: Regular cab, long bed, and extended cab. These all had different beds on them, so the bolt holes were there to fit all options.

Can you use different holes? Absolutely.

Will it make it better or worse? You'll only know after you grab a wrench and find out. The good thing is that you can't really mess anything up back there. It's just turning some wrenches and busting your knuckles.

It would be nice to have a buddy holding the bumper in place while you get the bolts in, but I've never had help doing it - so I know it isn't necessary.
