1. Remove the lower torx bolt that holds the bumper in place on the driver’s side of the frame On the outside of the frame rail, remove the two forward bolts that hold the steering box in place (there are other bolts that hold the steering box in place, so there is no need to support the steering box).  

2. Hold the steering box skid in place and thread all three bolts that were removed back into place. Torque these bolts to factory specs.  

3. On the Steering Box Skid there is one more hole that is located to the far left (if you are looking at the front of the Jeep) that is flush with your OE bumper. Drill a 3/8” (YJ) or 1/2” (TJ & LJ) hole through the OE bumper using the hole in the skid plate as a template. Use the provided hardware to finish the installation.
