STEP 1

BOLT REMOVAL
1. From underneath the vehicle locate the two rear brackets on the frame where the body mounts to the frame, loosen the bolts with a 16mm socket (there are three brackets on each side but only loosen the rear two),. Repeat this on the other side of the vehicle shown in Fig 1.


STEP 2

STEP 3

PRODUCT INSTALLATION
3. Take the rocker guard and locate the horizontal plate along the inside of the rocker guard, it will have two notches in it. Slide the notches between the body (shown in Fig 3) of the vehicle and the body mounts that you loosened in step 1.


STEP 4

DRILLING
4. With the notches in between the body and the body mounts take a set of clamps and clamp the upper vertical inner edge of the rocker guard flush with the side of the vehicle. Locate the holes in the vertical edge of the rocker guard, take a 13/32" drill bit and drill a hole through the vehicle body where the holes are located showin in Fig 4.


STEP 5

SCREW INSTALLATION
5. Place the M10x1.5 Screws through the Drilled Holes using a 6mm Allen Wrench and place the Washer and Nylon Lock nut from behind (shown in Fig 5) to thread the M10 Screw in place using a 17mm socket (repeat for the remaining holes). Repeat steps 1-5 on the other side of the vehicle.
