brushguard help

so i was gonna put it on today but first i had to get the couple hundred pounds of snow out frm the undercarrige. I got that done. But the instructons that came with it kinda suck. I know that its supposed to be bolted where the factory tow hooks r.... but those bolts r a lil rusty what would you suggest to do.

A whole lotta leverage and a few prayers that you don't snap off the head of the bolt.

That's experience talking right there. Seriously though, some liquid wrench (any penetrating oil), a breaker bar, and brace your feet against the front tires. Don't forget the chiropractor appointment!

i ran into the same problem with my brushgaurd.... i had to use alot of PB blast and a impact wrench wouldnt touch it... so i asked the dad for help and we took a regular socket wrench and put a peich of 2 ft metal pipe over it for more leverage and the broke loose.

I had a tough time getting those bolts out and mine wernt rusted. I was lucky enough to have the guys at the exaust shop to loosen mine up when i get a Flowmaster put on. The right tools will get the job done im sure. I just didnt have them.
