Bull bar trouble

I am installing a bull bar on my 08 tacoma and the instructions are not very helpful. the brackets have two holes on the top of the bracket but the nuts will not break.. So my question is can anyone help me and give me a quick run down on how these are installed. THANKS!!!

the bracket should mount in front of the forward crossmember, where the aluminum behind the bumper there are two bolts at the top. from others ive looked at the bracket slides in between the top bolts and frame assembly. I can't get mine to come loose, trying everything short of air tools.

I had to get a friend to break mine loose. They are on there tight and I could not get them loose. Think he just used a breaker bar and lots of muscle.
