The Front Bumper, Overriders, and License Plate

Step 01

Insert the Left Bumper Overrider (marked with a ‘L’) into the hole on the left side of the Front Bumper aligning the small pin (circled below).

The left side of the bumper is marked with an ‘L’ as well:

Secure these from behind the bumper with one (1) MM screw.

This is your friendly reminder to try using 3-in-One Oil on all screws going into metal:

Step 02

Repeat the previous step with the Right Bumper Overrider (marked with a ‘R’) and another one (1) MM screw:

Step 03

Insert the Left Support (marked with a ‘L’) behind the bumper so the longer end fits behind the Left Bumper Overrider, as shown:

Secure into place with two (2) HP screws:
