brush guard

I just picked up a brush guard last weekend for my truck. I dont know who makes it and I have never put a brush guard on a truck. Wondering if someone on here has a similar brush guard could tell me how to mount it on the truck or show me some pictures. I have two L shaped brackets that I really dont know where they go. Here is a picture of the guard.

I can't tell by that picture what the mounts look like. But here is how the one I just sold installs. If these instructions make sense then you may have the same basic guard. There are two L brackets that bolt under the existing bumper nuts. The up and down ends of the brackets should make sense when you look at how the guard attaches to these brackets. Loosen the two nuts on one frame end of the bumper, remove the two nuts at the other frame end of the bumper and pivot the bumper away from the truck pulling the two captivated bolts with it. You will want a friend helping you with this. If you have a sway bar the angle piece must go to the outside so you may have to determine which bracket is left side and which is right. Loosely replace the two nuts and do the same for the other bracket. You may have to trim a hard rubber piece a little, this will make sense when you put on the brackets. Get the bumper nuts almost snug, heave your guard in place, stab the bolts and snug them. Get a floor jack or similar and tweak everything where you want it and tightened all the hardware.

The stock bumper is surprisingly light.

crawl under the front of your truck and look up you will see a rubber guard push it out of your way and you will see two bolts on each side holding the bumper. 1st soak them down with pb, then losen all 4 but only remove 1 side at a time ( get em loose enough to move the bumper around) place 1 l braket on each side long leg goes under the bumper to the front and get everything hand tight ( make sure you can move it around a bit still) install the guard to the brakets I tightened those bolts all the way and move it around where you need it if you can ( I have never seen one that looked perfect) then tighten everything up and your done. I just did this last weekend for the first time and it took me all of 30 mins.

I don't know if the fitment to a 150 frame is different that then 250/350. But it looks like arms attached to your grill mate and bolt flat to the inside surfaces of both frame surfaces and the angle pieces wrap up and over the frame and bolts to the other surface.
