It sounds like if you can't MAKE it work then you should just buy a bar new with all the hardware included.

I can make it work, sure. Making mounting brackets can be done, it just won't look as nice as company made brackets. But if I have to then I will.

Not always the case I got my full front grill gaurd for 100 dollars with out brackets and the brackets I made are thicker then the company's and you get to decide how high you want it or how you want it to fit mine is further out and up higher. It looks good!

but not everyone has the means or skills to make their own... I'm in the same position,mine didn't come with them and I've been trying to find some without paying an astronomical price. Mostly because I don't have a welder or garage to work.

Is Manik out of business? They're who made the brush guard. Anyway, I found a place that sells the bracket hardware. No need for the pictures. Thanks anyway, Aaron00.

The guard looks like that, but I think that the bottom is different, mine has three holes for mounting. I can't really see, but it looks like yours is different.

Okay, I thought I only saw two bolts down there. Good to know I'm not going crazy.


I'm about to go out now and start grinding on the old brush guard. I hope this rust lifts.
