Step 1: Remove the Grille.
Unfasten the grill bolts and the push pins on top and undo the spring clips at the bottom. Pry open the grille to give yourself clearance the reach the spring clips. Use a long screwdriver to push down on and undo the spring clips.
Step 2: Cut Off the Plastic Beams.
You can easily use a handsaw to cut off the plastic beams. We recommend you lay down the grille on top of a carpet surface to make this step easier to perform.
Step 3: Prepare the LED Light Bar for Installation.
Assemble the rail mount base piece into the slot in the middle of the LED light bar. Lock it in at 5" from the edge using the included hex tool. Place the M6 bolt in between the base piece and slide in the longer M8 bolt through the rail piece and the M6 bolt. Secure them with the included spring washer and nut.
Step 4: Mount Your LED Light Bar Base Bracket Onto the Columns of the Grille Behind.
Place the brackets where they will be mounted and mark your drilling locations with a marker. Drill holes through the marked locations. Place the base brackets back, route the bolts through the holes and thread the nuts through the bolts.
Step 5: Secure the LED Light Bar on Top of the Base Brackets.
Run the nuts through the M6 bolts to secure the LED light bar to the base brackets.
