Westin light bar question

I just purchased a westin light bar like the one pictured from ebay. I am having a heck of a time figuring out how this mounts to the truck. Does anybody with this bar willing to help a brother out or have some pics of where the mount points are. Thanks Josh

I have an NFab but it looks like it'd mount up similarly. Those 2 tabs sticking out the back insert through the lower grille and there will be an additional mounting plate that attaches those 2 tabs to the truck. It doesn't look like they're showing you the rest of the mounting hardware but it's basically a piece of angle iron with holes drilled it.

Edit:
Check this out, about 1/3 the way down the page is that light bar mounted on a second gen.

Thanks looks like that could be the problem it didn't come with any other hardware

This is from another thread but it shows the mounting plates. I can't say for sure that's what the Westin bar uses but it looks very similar.

Figured it our guys thanks. He forgot to take the mounting brackets off his vehicle when he shipped them. They should be here next week. Thanks for the help.
