i just use zip ties and my shit fits great. 1 in each wheel well and 2 in between the headlights.

my friend josh used 100% of the OEM mounting brackets and hardware from his OEM bumper, thats too much work though

Yeah use the oem bumper support to get it to fit, might need a bit of fabricating to make it fit flush though.

expo, heres how me and scott did mine.
i needed to take the bumper off earlier so i took some pics to help u out.

the center thingy you need.



slide that under the flap that most bumpers have. mount it. i only used one bolt on each side.



then two zipties on each side. done.
