    I just purchased a westin light bar like the one pictured from ebay. I am having a heck of a time figuring out how this mounts to the truck. Does anybody with this bar willing to help a brother out or have some pics of where the mount points are. Thanks Josh

    I have an NFab but it looks like it'd mount up similarly. Those 2 tabs sticking out the back insert through the lower grille and there will be an additional mounting plate that attaches those 2 tabs to the truck. It doesn't look like they're showing you the rest of the mounting hardware but it's basically a piece of angle iron with holes drilled it.

    Edit:
    Check this out, about 1/3 the way down the page is that light bar mounted on a second gen.

    This is from another thread but it shows the mounting plates. I can't say for sure that's what the Westin bar uses but it looks very similar.
