    Hey guys, I got my bull bar a few days ago and I have been trying to put if on for the past few days...

    I finally figured out where everything bolts to(no thanks to the included directions) but there are 2 bolts on either side of the truck(4 total) where the mounts go that I can not get off.

    So for all you guys that put bull bars on your self what did yall use and did yall have any trouble?


    Thanks.

    I have a Avid bar but I'm not sure if its the same 4 bolts that you are talking about? Can you explain exactly where they are located?

    I love my new bar, just got to get my lights mounted.

    Can you take pics of the mounts? I just got mine in, and like you said the instructions are written for monkeys.

    Just put on a Westin that bolts on the same way. Their direction were lacking too but since they had a good draw it was easy to figure out.

    After I got through posting that, I went out with the L bracket and figured it out..
    I appreciate the pics.. I'm sure they'll help someone in the future anyways..
    I also took some for future reference..
    Got mine on, and man I love it!
    Thanks.
