    I've been trying to do this install for the last 2 hours and I can't figure it out for the life of me.

    I've got the 2 middle pieces together, bolted up. But the 2 side pieces are driving me nuts. I can't get the all of the holes lined up with each other to bolt them down. And the support brackets, that's another story.

    Any tips at this point of the install? I've tried loosening all of the bolts and then try lining the rest up, I've tried tightening down all the bolts and then try lining the rest up. I think I'm stumped. I'll try to tackle it again in the morning

    Thanks

    Nevermind I got it guys. It took a lot of flexing to get all the holes to line up. My old man ended up helping me out.

    I loosened all of the bolts, then flexed the bumper to line up all the holes, then my dad put the bolts in. Once all of the bolts were in, then I tightened them all up.

    The center flange needs to be on the other side!

    there shouldn't be a gap between the two center pieces.

    ahh crap. are u kidding me? took me forever to put the thing on

    The instructions read:

    "The front lip of the lower center section mounts above the bottom lip of the upper section."

    Did I read that wrong?

    I just put mine together...put it together the way you have it and none of the holes lined up on the side pieces. Took it apart and did it over, holes all line up...mounted today looks good. Still need to get some pics up.

    You can actually get them to fit with modified L brackets from home depot.


    I suggest looking into the PIAA 510's for the perfect fit though :thumbsup:

    Call up Pepe at All Pro and he can set you up!
