    What exactly do you need im guessing you need help with bracket and which way to put them i will get a pic or post a pic of the parts you have and i can compare location. i have the other light bar and im sure the brackets are the same. N-fab doesnt send directions which sucks. you will notice the bracket and the plate on the side the plate side goes on against the truck so the bolts are more open and easier to access when using tools heres a pic hope this helps the is the passenger side bracket
    [​IMG] dont mind the rust bolt that one gave me problems lol

    i personally really dont understand putting these things on your trucks.. the bracketing system will not hold up if you accientally hit something or someone break checks you and you rear end them.. they look like the way it is bolted on will actually harm the truck more when it bashes into the hood then to just not have one on at all.

    the brackets go on the outside of the aluminum cross bar right behind the bumper, then the bar slips through the lower grill and bolts with two bolts on each side. I'm pretty sure the brackets on both sides of the aluminum cross bar mount with the bend towards the inside. If this makes sense, the part that the actual Pre-Runner bar mounts onto will kinda reach upward toward the opening in the lower grill from its mounting point at the side of the aluminum crossbar.

    The point is to hold some extra lights, thats all, they deffinetly dont offer protection of any kind from any amount of force.

    i understand that... but it looks to me like a prerunner nerf bar/bumper. so.. why not just put on a real one that actually serves a purpose other than holding lights?
