Got some measurements, but was too dark to get any pictures worth a crap. The bottom of the bumper is 6.75 below the bottom of the tail gate, but there is a lip on bottom where the ball mount is that is about another .5” lower. Hopefully I can get some pictures in the daylight.

If you look it’s not the same bumper. That bumper is almost flush with the bottom of the tailgate and mine has over a 2” gap.

it appears to me you have an aftermarket bumper with generic adapters that lowered it down a bit more than normal.  pics of the attachment points between the bumper and frame brackets should answer what's going on. :L:

Ya, I think someone made those brackets to fit an MJ. I'll have to measure my bumper and clearance.
If you can weld, worst case is you cut the bumper brackets and position the bumper to clear then reweld or make new bumper brackets

Due to steel prices going up, I'm unfortunately gonna have to raise the price on hitches here soon.

I've currently got enough parts for 2 more hitches at the original price of $190+ shipping.

After these 2, the price will go up to $210+ shipping.

First pic Is where my custom bumper sits below tailgate (1.5")

Send pic is from tailgate to top of cross tube of hitch (7")

Third pic is from tailgate to bottom of cross tube of hitch (9.5")

So you have roughly 9.25" from tailgate to top of reciever.
And from your measurements, it looks like the bottom of your bumper is about 7.25" from bottom of tailgate.
