Default Raptor Series Mounting Question

Yesterday I installed 4" oval step bars on "Ramona". I am amazed at the quality of the bars and the brackets. Pictures will be coming soon!

I do have a question for anyone who has used the Raptor Series products. When I installed the front support brackets, they seemed a bit too long. In fact, they ended up lining up with the access holes better than the intended pinch weld hole.

Would anyone happen to have a picture of how they front support bracket mounts to their truck?

Thanks!

Well, I fitured it out... Last night I re-watched the installation video on Raptor's web-site. Well, I figured out that the instructions do not match the video and the REAL way to install.

Reading the instructions they show the T-bolt being installed through the hole that the OEM "nutserts" go into. In reality, and the video, the T-bolts actually are supposed to be mounted through the access holes.

Come to find out, I actually had the REAR installed incorrectly. I just got done putting the rear brackets where they belong. Now everything lines up as expected.

Don't you just love it when these companies charge you an arm and a leg for a product but can't spend the time to make the manual correct or even legible in some cases?

When I installed my Westin bars, the instructions were useless because the pictures were just black blobs in the manual (as if they had photocopied it using a fricken 03-year-old mimeograph machine from my grammar school). Had to end up searching on the manufacturer's site for another copy. Not a big deal, but come on guys -
