I have to start by saying the instructions need some changes; there is no mention of how to get the brackets inside the black air grill. Do you try to trim? Do you remove the section blocking the needed clearances? I opted to remove the section that would not have been there if the Jeep came with the front tow hooks. Picture included has many of the front grill pieces missing I guess that was to show how to install some of the hardware used. No mention of how to hold the double nut plate in place and getting a bolt started along with the mounting bracket, remember I did this with all the body parts in place not like the photo shows. I would have liked it if all the brackets were marked D for driver side and P for passenger side, it would have made the installation easier. It would have been great if the bolts washer and nuts used were the same color as the guard and bracket, there in a very visible spot and stand out like a sore thumb, I may change them out if I can find a suitable replacement black or chrome. All in the entire job took longer than expected do to trying to figure out how to get the brackets attached to the Jeep. My problem may have been because installing the Rear Bumper Guard and Curt Hitch went so smoothly, about 30 min.
