    My Trail Riding weekend in Ocala a couple weeks ago! Was tons of fun!

    If you're not getting dirty you’re not having enough fun! Lol

    Have you ever used Steel-it paint in a rattle can? The stuff is great and can weld with it too. Really durable but a little expensive so have to use sparingly.

    Got these installed this weekend. But front passenger side the screw hole on the A frame not lined up so unable to install that one. Any suggestions?

    Looks great just warn the passengers from banging their head. Sometimes that issue crops up with those products. Try loosening all fasteners then wiggle until you can get a few threads in. Or slightly enlarge the holes on the grab bars. Or it could be defective mass produced unit.

    It goes in a bit and threads in bout half way then stops. I almost got it stuck so was afraid of trying again. It’s an Allen wrench head on the screws. I think if it was a regular screw head I would have already gotten it on. The driver side went on so easily.

    Will try loosening the fasteners and see if that works.

    Try a thread chaser type tap and run that thru to make sure it’s clear. And a die on the bolt to make sure it’s perfect. Don’t want to risk a cross-thread situation. Might even use some lube or anti seize.
