So, now that we have the tailgate down, we have a clear view of all of our mounting bolts. We have two here, 13-millimeter. And then, if you were to go around, more than likely you have some Phillips heads. We're gonna remove them all. Here we go. Bring up the tailgate. Now, we can see what's going on in there. Let's see about popping this off of here. Here we are.

Now, this one right here has been broken for a while so it has a little wire tie. I'm just gonna get that right out of there using some cutters. Awesome. Now, you got these little white clips. They should kinda pry off of the bar there. And then, once you have it flipped up you can take the rod right off. This one obviously flips down. Here we are. Slide that out of right there. Here it is.

It's time to get this in here, just get it kinda lined up. You can grab your little rods. We're gonna put it through the hole just like that, and we're gonna spin this around so the lock comes around and clips right onto the rod. Give it a wiggle. That feels great. Do the same to the other one. Bright that one up and around. Lock it in. Perfect.

Get that started in there. We're just gonna turn it and try to make sure these bolt holes are lined up and they're not like that. Line them up nice. You see, when I tightened it, it kinda turned a little bit. Here we are. Let's get this back up on here. Line our bolt holes. Here we are. Now, I'm gonna go around the sides, start all those in as well. All right, let's start snugging them all up.

Let's get this puppy installed. I'm just gonna line it up. Make sure you wanna press right in. A couple of loving bonks. Put those clips in there. Beautiful.
