Expedition one rear bumper fitting issues

Hello, guys.
I have issues fitting the expedition one rear bumper without swingout on my truck.
Bumper was new in the box.
Corners came from a guy who previously installed the bumper and sold it later. They were precut.
I had a Demello previously which fit. without issues. No gaps.
Bottom line is that I can not slide this bumper all the way to the end and I have HUGE gaps.
It seems like it is hitting OEM hitch and/or OEM bolts, just like in this post

I have not tightened the locknuts but before doing that the bumper was supposed to stay closer to the frame I guess.
I am so pissed off right now. Also it looks like the square boxes are smaller than the tabs, see pictures.
The whole point of me getting this bumper is that it is suppose to work with the oem hitch.
Can anyone tell me, when you installed the bumper, were you able to push it closer to the body before tightening it down? Also your square boxes looked like mine?
