3. From underside of vehicle, remove the two bolts holding the driver factory tow hook, then remove tow hook from vehicle. NOTE: This Bull Bar is not compatible with factory tow hooks, so you will not be reinstalling factory tow hooks back onto vehicle.

Position driver side Frame Bracket to the outside of the frame rail and secure using the included (2) 12mm x 35mm Hex Head Bolts, (2) 12mm lock Washers, (2) 12mm Hex Nuts, and (4) 12mm Flat Washers (Figure 1).
