Step 1: Position the guard up to the frame. Maintain a ½” minimum gap between the bottom of the vehicle and the top of the guard. Adjust the guard from front to back until it is parallel to the side of the frame while also making sure it is parallel with the side of the vehicle. (Assistance is recommended while installing these guards)

Step 2: When you are satisfied with the placement of the guard, mark the side of the frame through the mounting holes located on the guards brackets. After you have marked all the holes place the guard to the side. Center punch the frame at the marked locations and drill a 5/16” hole in the frame. Caution: Before drilling be sure to check the backside for hazards or obstructions.

Step 3: Position the guard back against the frame and line up the holes in the brackets with the holes that you just drilled on the frame. Secure the guard to the frame using the supplied self tapping bolts. Tighten all bolts at this time. (Figure 1, 2)

Step 4: Repeat these steps to install the other side. Installation is now complete.




NOTE: To protect your investment, wax this product after installing. Regular waxing is recommended. Do not use any type of polish/wax that contains abrasives that could damage the finish.
