Mines pretty bad. Pass side is worse, stick my fingers through it. I notice it on many other tbs too. Its even been pointed out to me by others. I slipped some slim wood pcs from furniture legs under the bottom between cap and bumper. After some trial and error it didn't look as bad. Def still noticeable. Sure a body shop could line it up but at what coat and how long will it remain? Use it as an excuse for a bumper mod?

The bumper bracket for the outside corners probably became unglued. The brackets on the inside of the bumper sit on 4 tiny plastic posts and are glued on, and the slightest impact will break the studs and glue loose. You need to remove the bumper and re-attach the brackets. They should be sitting on the studs (frame side) they mount to. Once you remove the bumper you will see.

I have pretty bad bumper gap too. I saw a possible way to do a temporary fix with zip ties that wouldnt be noticeable.
