Well these pictures are from your last post so I'll put them back up. These are for 2 door bars on a 2 door truck.
Rear Mounting Bracket

You can see where the second bolt goes by looking at the back of the bracket there.
Here is where the second bolt goes by looking at the other side.

After looking at your pics again you have the back bracket on incorrectly. The mount needs to be on the inside of the cab where you have your bolt, not the outside. Then the other mounting tab you have on the wrong side of the rib that comes down off the cab. My pics should clear it up.

No problem. I'm just glad when I bought mine from a guy he let/made me take them off. That way I knew exactly how they went on and I made sure I took all the hardware.
