Step 1. Locate the four (4) body mounts at the rear of the front wheel well, and in front of the rear wheel well (two mounts per side). Start by removing the 18mm center body mount bushing bolts on each body mount (some force may be required).


Step 2. Once the center bolts are removed, remove the remaining two (2) 16mm nuts located on either side of the bolt. Do this for each of the four (4) body mounts.


Step 3. Supporting the RRC Side Armor from underneath, lift the Armor into place and slide it between the large washer and the body mount, taking care to align the holes in the Armor mount with the two body mount studs. Apply several drops of threadlocker to the studs. Thread the two nuts onto the studs loosely. Repeat for each body mount location.


Step 4. Once all the nuts have been loosely threaded and the Armor is attached to the vehicle, begin tightening the nuts to 40-ft/lbs. Repeat for each mounting location.


Step 5. Once all the nuts have been tightened, tighten the center bolt of the body mount to 80-ft/lbs. Repeat for each mounting location.


Step 6. Installation is now complete.
