Added Bull Bar

Just added my bull bar today. I had it for about a week, but just got to it. I did it by myself, which although is doable, I would recommend help. There was only one problem. One hole in the driver side bracket did not match up to the hole for the bracket that goes inside the frame. I need to take it to shop that has the machinery to modify the hole. I tried, but the metal is to thick. Also, the bar looks crooked because of the license plate holes (which I need to block) but it's actually the holes that are crooked..I measured them.

I also noticed, and which I circled, gaps in my bumper under the lights, and on the passenger side of the grill. I noticed they are also in older pic from when I first got the car. Is this normal?

Thanks

Re: Added Bull Bar

Looks good, I had mine installed @ a shop.

Since you installed it yourself, is there anyway you can move the bull bar lower??

Re: Added Bull Bar

You really don't need a shop, it's pretty easy..other than the holes not matching..

I can't see any way of them being lowered much, the holes on the bracket that connects to the bar are slotted up and down, and I have them at the lowest point. The inside brackets have one side to side slotted one, and one up and down one, which does nothing for moving it lower.

Re: Added Bull Bar

looks good. I installed the brush guard on my WJ myself. I was gonna bring it in to have it installed, but figured I would give it a shot. And it was too bad.

Re: Added Bull Bar

I was going to take it to a shop today to see about them grinding out the hole so that I can bolt the last bolt down. I first stopped at Lowes to pick up some hole plugs to paint and plug those ugly holes, and I went and looked and found a grinding cylinder that fits on a drill. I figured for 3 bucks I'll try that first. Well I ended up doing it myself, and got the last bolt on. It is much sturdier now, I was worried before because although it didn't feel lose, it didn't feel sturdy either. I didn't think one bolt would matter that much, but it did. Just waiting for the paint to dry so I can get a few more coats on and plug those ugly holes.
