Pop the hood. Lift the hood some. Center the grill cover. Bend the tabs along edges. Lift the hood so u can see from the backside of the grill. Adjust the straps so they hook up. I just hooked mine where it looked good. Snug it all up. There are 4 padded clip like things for protecting where the side tabs are bent around. It's kind of a pain the first time u put it on.

This is what I always did but from the instructions, it looks like you bend the tabs up and put them in the holes on the underside of the grill and not just bending them along the edge. Learn something new every day.

Thats the only way it fit and looked correct. The tabs were not long enough to fit in the grooves.

I dont have those holes on the underside of the grille so those tabs aren't doing much good.

I just looked and I too don't have those holes underneath the grill. Probably why I never attempted to do anything with those tabs other than bend them at 90 degrees. Here's a couple of pictures from when someone asked me what an OEM winterfront looked like.

When do you guys suggest would be the best time/temp to put these on? Are they necessary for the 6.4? I got mine sitting behind the rear seats waiting to be put on.
