3. Align your bumper so that it sits straight in relation to your valance, and is centered left to right. Then, tighten the 1/2” mounting bolts to 70 foot pounds.  

4. Stand back and enjoy your new ADD Lite Front Bumper.  

5. Check and re-tighten if needed, all mounting bolts after 100 miles and periodically thereafter.
