Any tricks to reinstalling the rear corner steps?

The plastic pieces that sit on top of the oem bumper. I removed all the pieces to plastidip the rear bumper, and well, I should've just taped it off! Those corner pieces are designed to be installed w/ the bumper off, thats for sure. Anybody have a trick to install the plastic steps while the bumper is still on the truck?

It was a huge pain in the ass even with the bumper off so dont be kicking yourself too much.

No tips really fro me, it just took a while to getnthose little tabs lines up so everything slides in right.

ok cool, thanks. I'll spend some more time w/ it tomorrow. I think I have the driver side locked in. It seems pretty tight, so I'm going to assume its good, lol. Passenger side....still fighting me.
