I havent figured out the back plate ("swing arm"), but the main plate goes on fairly easy.
First, remove the stock plastic "skid plate" and front bumper (note: try not to pull the drain tube out of the engine). Next, line up skid plate and install front bolt just to hold it in place (this is where the bottom bolt of the three that held the bumper on went, and is the largest diameter bolt in the kit). Now, There are three longer bolts should have come in the hardware kit. These go in where the original bolts were that held the stock plastic skid plate on. This should leave 2 mounting holes left in the skid plate. These are where the curved mounts go (the same ones that hold the front a-arm skid plates on if you have them).
I hope that makes sense, im kinda bad at explaining things. If you need some more help ill try to post some pictures tomorrow.
It helps a lot to just lightly tighten everything down at first as a mock-up. That way you can put in the little cushions in that came with the kit. Although, they really dont do much as mine still rattle.
