|STEP TWO Locate the narrow open space between the floor pan and the cross-member panel. Use a long thin blade screw driver or piece of heavy wire to guide the special 3/8" T-nut through the narrow space with the extended thread side down, until centered over the stamped 5/8" diameter hole in the cross-member panel. The picture shows the T-nut installed in this position. Thread the 3/8" socket screw into the T-nut until it stops against the floor pan. Place the U-bracket over the socket screw with a flat washer on top against the cross-member panel. The second washer installs under the locknut. Use a 3/16" allen wrench to prevent rotation of the socket screw and tighten the locknut to secure the U-bracket.Install the U-bracket in a "front to rear" position, as shown below.|
Install the lock bar through the holes in both legs of the U-bracket, with the grooved end facing toward the front of the vehicle. Place the crimp-ring retainer in the groove and crimp closed with pliers. Rotate U-bracket as needed, until the lock bar is positioned approx. 2-3/8 inches from the vertical winch cable and re-tighten locknut.
