Introduction

This guide will walk through the correct installation procedure for the Grimm OffRoad Side Light Mounts on a Jeep Wrangler JL or Gladiator JT equipped with the factory steel bumper.

Consumer Warning

All Grimm OffRoad products must be installed by a competent and qualified individual in accordance with the installation instructions intended for the product. Incorrectly installed products will void any warranties and may result in damage to the product or damage to the vehicle it was installed on. Read any provided instructions or guides and watch any available videos before attempting installation. If there are any questions, please contact Grimm OffRoad before starting installation.

Many products require the vehicle be properly raised and supported off the ground. The installer is responsible for confirming that this may be done in a safe manner and the correct equipment is available to perform the installation. Grimm OffRoad installation instructions assume the installer is able to properly and safely lift the vehicle.

Vehicles that have been modified will not perform the same as a stock vehicle. It is incumbent upon the owner of the vehicle to be aware of the differences the modifications will make to the driving characteristics of the vehicle. These may include (but are not limited to): changes in handling, braking, rollover angle, incompatibilities with the factory anti-lock braking systems, stability control systems, or traction control systems.

Supporting Parts

This Grimm OffRoad product is designed to be used in conjunction with aftermarket performance lights. It is up to the consumer to verify that the lights will be compatible with the mount. It is important to review and familiarize yourself with the instructions provided with the lights before beginning installation.

Tools

  1. The Light Brackets are left and right specific. The lights will mount on the 'inside' of the brackets, with the bracket mounting tabs on the 'outside' when looking from the front of the vehicle. The rounded feet on the mounting tabs point forward.
