What a fun install. Had a real hard time with the studs untill i got a tool for the job. Some truck have E-torx studs which are on the easier side to get out. I was not that lucky and end up needing a stud puller. Which I got at the china tool palace, aka Harbor Freight. i would have went qualtiy route if i had the time. With a un driveable truck my hand was forced. Oh well.
After that speed bump the pass side went very easy. With no issues at all.
Now the drivers side. I had to notch the flange and use a BFH to get the bolts into place. The bolt I had to nudge isnt seating properly and i have very annoying tick which i need to address. This was rather pain in the butt time consuming project. Mostly becuase i choose to use stage 8 locking hardware. The JBA stuff must be different. I got these second hand so i didn't have any hardware.
Here are the pics. I took a few more than this but they really didn't focus well.
Notice the size difference on the middle port.
