Pic Request of grill guard brackets for BL

I just got my BL and SL done but now i cant put on my grill guard. So i was wondering if anyone who has a BL and a grill guard has any measurements or would like to make me some (I would pay of course) new brackets for my grill guard.

I don't know if you already have your brackets or not, and I don't know how your grille guard is made, but here is my setup:

It would be much more important if the drawing weren't to exact scale. You can lay this piece of paper over the the part and draw the exact location of the holes. I never claimed to be an engineer or draftsman...geez.

I didn't mean to be a d*ck. I took 5 years of drafting and CAD throughout high school and college so I spot things like that easily. I guess if you use it as a template then you wouldn't need the locations but if you were posting it for other members to use, it would be very difficult to make a template without the dimensions for the holes. Not trying to be a smartass, just trying to be help.

Good point. I actually drew it as a template for the company that produces the grill guard that I have. They had no provisions for someone with a body lift. It's not exactly my best work, but I haven't done any "real" drafting for several years. But I do have to read blueprints and schematics all the time. Thanks for the tip.
