1. Remove the fasteners holding the factory tow hooks to the bumper using a T55 Torx bit. These bolts may be seized tight. Applying penetrating oil a few times over a day or two in advance may be required. Do not discard these bolts, they will be reused. Refer to Figure 1.

2. Preassemble the complete Light Bar Assembly on the floor as shown in the above picture. Ensure the Driver Bracket, and Passenger Bracket are in the proper location. Install the Grommets. Leave all hardware loose as some alignment/adjusting will be required later. If you plan to run lights, now is the time to run the wiring through the bar. Refer to Figures 2 and 3.

3. Position the assembly on the bumper of the Jeep and reinstall the OEM tow hooks on top of the Driver and Passenger Brackets with the previously removed hardware. Be sure to place the hooks back in their original place. There is a LH and RH hook. Tighten the OEM tow hook fasteners. This will secure the Driver and Passenger Brackets. Refer to Figures 4 and 5.
