now I started off by taking off the stock bumper... which on the pre-04 models, the grill and bumper are the same piece...




you just need to grind down the lip between the bumper and grill and they come apart nicely..

grill back on

then i started bolting in the bracket. Here it is installed..

It is about 11 bolts on both sides... very tough bracket... It bolts all the way back and between the sway bar and "frame." It then sandwiches the frame with the two brackets and then the Cradle for the winch bolts to them...






then you actually have to grind down the corners of the metal behind the bumper so it will fit on.. it barely fits over the front of the vehicle

well you see the black brackets on the front? they have two bolts each that bolt to the front of the bracket.. then you screw the sides into the fenders..

the fiberglass is AT LEAST 1/4" thick.. its solid!
