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 1 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. (NOTE: check
to ensure there is adequate room under the fender to
mount the front bracket.)
(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.)
It is helpful to install your center support (rear)
bracket first on half-fenders. Place the E-Z Mount
Center Support Bracket into the predetermined frame
hole. (NOTE: If possible utilize the fifth wheel rail
hole.) Rotate the bracket in an upward position or
slightly toward rear of fender. (NOTE: If you are using
a 8" or 10" bracket do not mount bracket at an angle
greater than 45 degrees. If you are mounting either
bracket at an angle greater than 45 degrees, YOU MUST
USE the next size shorter bracket.) Do not drill fender
holes yet - use a vice grip type clamp to hold the
Using a 4" E-Z Mount Bracket under the fender, in front
of the tire, install the assembled bracket into the
predetermined hole in the frame. Tighten the Nyloc
nut so the bracket rotates firmly forward, up or down.
It is best to mount the bracket arm in a range of 9"
to 13" from the bottom edge of the fender to the center
of the bracket arm. Allow the bracket plate to meet
the fender evenly. (NOTE: Do not force the fender down
or in to meet the bracket.)
bracket plate in or out across the width of the fender
so it is centered. (you want all holes in fender to
be in line when you are finished.) Mark and drill the
fender holes, removing the fender before drilling.
Reset the fender and install stainless buttonhead bolts
through fender and bracket plate tightening only one
Nyloc nut for now. Proceed to center support (rear)
Before drilling and bolting the center support
(rear) bracket, adjust the bracket plate in or out
across the width of the fender so it is centered.
(NOTE: If you are using a 8" or 10" bracket do not
mount bracket at an angle greater than 45 degrees.
If you are mounting either bracket at an angle greater
than 45 degrees, YOU MUST USE the next size shorter
bracket.) Drill the holes into the fender (fender
does not need to be removed.) Install stainless
buttonhead bolts through fender and bracket plate.
When you have completed mounting center support
(rear) bracket tighten all Nyloc nuts front and
