Contact the maufacturer(westin maybe?) if you know who makes it. I'm sure they could shoot you an installation kit for cheap.

my bedliner is worthless... has 4 cut outs for my roll bar plates to attach to the bed, another 3 cut outs for the spare tire carrier, 4 more for the tie downs, all in all it has 11 cut outs. i doubt it really protects anything now.:(

Well i have plans of making it fit anyways. I am thinking about running steel brackets from where the tow hooks mount up to the bull bar and making it fit that way. It is going to take some ingunity to make it fit but i think me and my brother in-law can make it fit. Never fear torches and welders are our friends.
