Doubler Plates (P/N 106719-1) are installed inside the channel of the brush
guard mount, under the cab and over the existing 3.000-in.-diameter holes. The
Doubler Plates are put in place to allow the use of attachment bolts on the front
of the driver's-side blast deflector and lower brush guard mount. Install the
Doubler Plates with the slot aligned for bolt adjustment forward and rearward.
The driver's-side Blast Deflector (P/N 106717-1) cutouts, which are on the inside
edge (engine side) of the Blast Deflector, should be positioned over the cab/skid
plate frame brace. Make certain that the rear upper cutout is in front of the rear
cab mount that is directly behind the cab.
