To those of you that have installed this already when attaching the front air wing do you put the screw inserts from the back through the hole with the screws and washers in the front or do the inserts go on the front side with the screws on the back.

either way looks like the air damn is hitting on the ac lines one the passenger side

the installed instructions are not clear on this and the copied black and white photos suck at showing any detail.

Also I unclipped the wiring harness and moved it in front of the horn assembly is there anything else required to do with this or the horn seems like an awful restrictive place to have air flow pass through with the horn and wiring in its path.
Per Patrick (Vararam Tech), he likes the front wing mounted in front... Screws coming from the engine side to the front...
It looks like all Gen4 Vararams on the 2012's are hitting the AC lines on the passenger side... I trimmed mine out with a rotary cutter to remove the bind and which added more clearance on the passengers side.
It is because Mother Mopar moved the engine over 2 inches towards the passenger side on the gen 4 trucks and Vararam is still running their stock base unit setting centered on the engine but 2 inches off center of the truck...
I also moved the horn wiring behind the wing, to get it out of the airflow....
Good luck on yours, as I'm still fighting mine to make it work as I think it should work...
