    Derp on me I totally forgot to update.
    I bought the ones from ruff stuff. Worked great easy to replace and the new ones come with a lock to leave it twisted up. I feel like that’s more dangerous. I rather break another pin over let the gate slam against the gas spring? Or worse?

    any way I got 2 pins and leave one in the cubby of my truck bed in case I break another one in the wild

    I believe cutouts are for different lighting options. I didn't end up using them and was able to install my Baja design lights without them. I didn't use them because when I sent all of my pieces to get powder coated those pieces weren't powder coated so I left them off.

    As for the support brackets, there is really only one orientation that they fit/lineup in. I just took both support brackets and tried them in different orientations until they lined up accordingly. I'd go take pictures but don't want to deal with snow on the ground.

    The offset mounting holes are bolted to the bumper near the spot where you'd find the other support brackets. You'll line them up against the frame, then mark the frame to drill. I can take a photo if needed.
