    The body is bolted to the frame via big rubber bushings that absorb harshness, in turn the body flex’s in relation to the frame. With a steel bumper mounted to the frame you NEED to have about 1/2” gap to allow for flex or you’d tear up the body and crack the taillights when they impact the bumper during flex. It’s not the most aesthetically pleasing thing in the word but it’s absolutely necessary. It does tend to stand out more on lighter colored vehicle where you clearly see the body inside, dark colors hide it better.
