Body issues

My front fender and back bumper stick out on the sides a bit, as if they aren't clipped into place. also my front fender seems like it's too low to the because there is a big gap between the front fender and the hood.

I'll post some pics on what these things look like in a bit.

my bumpers now stick out too near the fenders. Likely d/t removing it a few times and the plastic brackets being worn.

They are meant to let go in the case of an accident or excess pressure placed on them so the bumper is less likely to crack/break. Over time the plastic brackets wear out

I think the bumper brackets and clips can also get abused during bumper removal, in part because at least one important clip is invisible and nothing in the owners manual, factory manual or this site really nails how to separate the parts...which way to pull and hold things, etc.
(I really want to get the darn thing off to scout/do fog light install, clean bugs off radiator, install mini-spare mount bolts, and add a tow-ring receiver nut to the left side.)

Mine does that as well. My drivers headlight sits wonky too.

HOWEVER, mine has been wrecked before I owned it (hit a deer), and I attributed it to that.

Mine was crashed by the previous owner but they got the body damage repaired and the engine had nothing wrong with it.
