    Look at the thread below, in post # 2, I show a link and pictures of the clamp that you will need to stop that bolt from spinning.

    Im having trouble again. Just got my bull bar in today. Got under my truck and it looked like it be an easy install. I noticed you have a bull bar as well and am hoping you have similar brackets like mine. I looked all over and can't find my answer.

    Ok so to install the two main support brackets it uses two bolts already existing on each side of the truck. Ill describe only one side. First I removed the bolt from the bumper to the chassis (that was easy). Now the second bolt is where I'm having issues. It is the first bolt underneath the front of the truck screwed into the chassis (hex head pointing directly at the ground).

    I can't remove this bolt and its very frustrating. I seem to be able to loosen the bolt but barley. it just keeps spinning and doesn't come free. Looking closer I notice it is spinning these rubber bushing things above the chassis. I can't seem to clamp them or get them to stop spinning to free the bolt. I feel like I have tried everything to free this bolt, but clearly missing the mechanics of this.

    Did you have this problem? Do I need a special tool? Im pretty stubborn and don't want to take it to a shop for something that should be so easy, but I feel like I may have to.

    Hope this all makes since. I have a diagram of how these brackets work if your not familiar.

    Thanks for everything!
