Just recieved my Moose skid plate from the UPS guy and it's really really cold out in the shed so I'm staying in.
It didn't have any installation instructions, pictures etc.
Does anyone here have any instructions, pictures etc. for placement of the clamps, order of assembly etc?

Looks like that set of bars that the XRL uses as a skid plate needs to come off. Is that right?
That would explain all of those I see listed on Ebay.
Hope it's warmer tomorrow.

That's correct, the stock unit comes off.
When you install your Moose skid plate, put the front bolts in first, but leave them loose, so the skidplate just hangs there. Gives you more room to get the rear clamps in place.
Make sure you use locktite..

My skid plate fit right over the stock bash bars with no loss of ground clearance, and they have helped to absorb a few hits.

I used the clamps, and just left off the front mounting bolts.
