Default body lift help with rear bumper

I have a 2001 blazer that I put a P.A 2"body lift on awhile back,,almost a year ago.. and when I installed it, I ran out of daylight towards the end and I didn't get to install the rear bumper. I have been real busy at work and haven't had time to pit it on,but I have off Monday for Columbus day and i figured I'd het this on,, but i can not fond the instructions so I'm not 100% sure where to trim the bumper.. I'm sure ill figure it out when i get working on it but does anyone have a pic of where they trimmed there bumper to get ot to fitand any other helpful tips to.get this bumper back on as quickly and easily as possible...
Btw sorry for all the misspellings,,stupid touch phones...

Huh? Why would you trim the rear bumper? I didn't trim mine at all. And my '96 isn't much different than your '01. The only thing you need to do is drill another hole in the bumper brackets so it pushes the bumper up a bit. It still won't be exactly flush but it'll look better than a 2 inch gap there.

You have to trim a bit of the bumper structure so it clears the frame.

Just hold it up, mark where to cut and see if you cut enough. repeat until it fits.

If it mounts where the tow hooks go I used 4 inch square tubing, drilled holes in the same spots as the mounting hardware. Just hard to get my hands in to tighten up the nuts thats all but it worked out good.
