Can get rear overriders through the fender, bolted to the bumper. But there aren’t any holes/bolts to secure them on bumper bracket. Nothing lines up, help?

The over rider supports should bolt up with the forward most bumper bracket bolts. It helps to loosen pretty much all the bolts, get everything together and then start tightening up.

Photos would be a HUGE help here, as your wording doesn't make a lot of sense. Wink

Example, here is how the rear overrider support brackets secure to the car. This is a US delivery car with standard equipment "ram protection" (aka towel bars / overriders.) US-spec cars were Deluxes that included the ram protection equipment. However, cars delivered to Canada could easily have been standards, not Deluxes, (as both were available for Canada delivery) and would not necessarily have come with overriders. Thus, no holes in the bumper blade and no round overrider support bracket hole in the rear fender for the towel bars. That's why I suggested photos of your issue.

Here’s a rough idea of how mine are-maybe it will help you out...

^^^

Correct. The overrider supports are side-specific. Make sure you have the correct support for each side.

Bolted to the car, it looks like this:

Note the bolt flange on the rear overrider support brackets point inward. (This is contrary to the front overrider brackets, as they point outward.)

As previously shown, the body mounting bolt goes through the overrider support first, then the bumper bracket. This configuration is an easy mount-up, as long as you have the correct supports and OEM fender with the hole in the correct spot.
