Mount Fender Brackets
|INSTALLATION OF FULL ROUND
WITH OUTSIDE FENDER MOUNTS
TO USE E-Z MOUNT BRACKET SYSTEM and
pre-assemble your brackets.
Determine the best location for your fenders to be
mounted and temporarily block or support the fender
into desired position. (We suggest using a I x 4 x
12" strip of wood across the top of tires.) Using shims
where necessary, center the fender on the blocks, making
sure the fender is level with the frame and from the
ground up to the bottom of the fender front and rear.
(NOTE: It is important to keep the fender an equal
distance from the frame. Periodically check the distance,
front and rear, by measuring from the outside edge
of the fender to the frame.)
| Using the E-Z Mount Outside Fender
Bracket, (single stud or post mount) install the front
bracket either into the predetermined hole in frame
or the post mount on the suspension. If you are using
the single stud mount, tighten the Nyloc nut so the
bracket rotates firmly. If you are using the post mount,
secure the clamp so the bracket rotates firmly.
With the bracket mounted firmly to the frame, hold
the fender up to the bracket and hold the first and
fourth grommets in place between the fender and bracket.
Mark the fender at the outside end of bracket, and
along the top of the first and fourth grommets.
the fender from the blocks and set on the floor. Hold
the 1 1/2" x 19 3/4" backing plate across fender. Line
up the top of the backing plate With the marks you
made along the first and fourth grommets and the outside
end of the backing plate with the marks you made at
the outside end of the bracket (NOTE: It is important
that the marks are equal distance from the bottom edge
of the fender - this will ensure that the bracket is
mounted straight.) Using your backing plate as a template,
drill the four holes in the fender.
(NOTE: Remember to only drill the four holes that
line up with the bolt holes in your bracket. The
other holes are for the tabs on the tab lockwashers,
to keep the 3/8" x 1 3/4" bolts from loosening when
the job is complete.) It is helpful to insert each
3/8" bolt into each hole as they are being drilled.
This will ensure the backing plate remains lined
After you have drilled the four holes in your fender
we suggest that you enlarge them to 13/32". This
will allow for adjustment when bolting the fender
to the brackets. Place the fender back onto the
blocks and temporarily bolt the fender to the bracket
using the first and fourth holes. Be sure to put
grommets between fender and bracket. Proceed to
rear of the fender and repeat same process. After
you have drilled the four holes in fender for rear
bracket, place the fender back onto the blocks and
bolt the fender to the brackets. Be sure to put
grommets between fender and brackets. Using the
backing plate and tab lockwashers under the fender,
torque the 3/8" x 1 3/4" bolts to 10 ft/lbs. front
and rear.( NOTE: Retnember to bend the tabs on the
tab lockwashers down against the hex head of the
3/8" bolts holding the backing plate.)
Torque 5/8" Nyloc nut to 150 ft/lbs.
Replace air in suspension. Mounting is complete.
