I would not have gotten these things installed without this thread!

C4x4's instructions are like:
1. Remove bumper
2. Install plates
3. Install bumper

And yeah, it's nothing like that. The instructions they give you should be like the index for the real instructions.

I would say it takes far more than a basic hand tools to install this. In addition so wrenches and sockets I used an impact wrench, 3 different lengths of extensions, a universal socket for the bolt by the alternator, a drop light and an extra set of hands. I also had to cut one of the torx bolts that hold the bumper to the brackets. It and the speed nut had rusted into unity.

Bottom line: the hardware is great but the directions are severely lacking.
