I just put mine on the other day. I didn't have the studs so I made do with what I did have. I put 2 nuts in between the skid plate and lower rad support then bolted it in place.

Worked for me!

I second the demand for pictures. The ONLY one I have seen is the one on Rusty's website which is low res. Would be cool to compare it to the stocker
