The installation, to be honest, is overly complicated. There are crush-fastener inserts that are a pain in the butt to get to work. You have to insert them into the holes you drill in the skid plate then thread a bolt into them making them crush, flare out, and fill the hole so the bolt has something secure to thread into. I understand the need to make something that is as universal as this, but since I haven’t used them before, I did it by hand and broke one of the bolts. Grabbing an electric drill (an impact wrench would probably work better) I installed the second one with less issue and the bolt intact. The crush inserts are really the only way to mount up the guard because there is no way to get a wrench on any lock nuts you’d try to use because of where the guard mounts to the skid plate.
