Well, as the guy I bought the grille guard from was trying to find me some new mounting hardware, he discovered that his old truck actually was an HD. He also learned that if I put that grille guard on my truck (non HD), it would sit 2" higher than the one meant for my truck, which would interfere with my headlights.
I don't want to risk having something that wouldn't look right, so I'm going to get my money back and give it back to him. I'm disappointed, but I guess it just wasn't mean to be. At least I'm getting my money back and didn't get screwed over. It's probably better in the long run anyway because I'm looking to get new tires soon and I could use that $150 back in my pocket.Matt

When I installed the grille guard on my Tahoe, I ran into a problem. I followed the directions, put the bracket with the "R" on the driver side like the directions. But could not get the bracket to line up with the holes from the tow hooks. We tried to force the bracket in place and every thing. Then I got the idea to switch the brackets right on passenger side and all worked like it was made to fit.
So is it right from the front or from the driver's seat. I was always told it is from the driver's seat?Mark - Ohio TahoeLondon, Ohio2005 Chevy Tahoe"Bitten by the Mod Bug"

Grill Guard install... Help
Maybe the brackets were made in England.

Sorry to hear that. At least you're not stuck with something that won't work though. You can put that money towards something that will work for you. I've seen a lot of good deals on ebay. I'm thinking about eventually getting a bull bar on ebay because the prices are so good. Hope you find something that will work for ya.

This looks like it sets up the same as the grille guard that I have on my Tahoe.
I had to remove the factory tow hooks. Then take the bracker stamped "L" and install it on the right side. Then install the "R" bracket on the left side. Mounting was easy after we figured out this mistake in the directions.
My instruction said R and L from the driver's seat, but it was R and L as you looked at the Tahoe from the front.

They usually attach via bolts which connect to the frame at the same point as the bumper. Installation is as simple as removing the bumper or front bumper cover, bolting on the extender mounts for the grille guard, and then re-attaching the bumper. The extender mounts stick out from the bottom or protrude over the top of the bumper, depending on the design, and the guard then bolts on to the mounts.
