Cool My Matrix 4xGuard

I have been dragging my feet with this post, but I thought I should at least start it.
This is my matrix 4xguard with the front slide plate and 2" receiver.
There was so much help from many members here and it made the install a lot more simple.

Here are a few pics that I thought would help future matrix installers

I'll start with a few pics of what's needed for those of us who don't have front tow hooks from factory.
You need 2 PN 52090140AA cheap less than $10 each. Then a few grade 8 locking nuts from homedepot or lowes less than $3 total.

After you take the fascia off you need to unbolt this big steel cup.



The part only fits in one way, so that helps a lot. Here are a few more pics to help the next guy/gal.





When the boxes come, there are a whole lot of steel parts and a few more pics never hurts.






I'll have much more, but for right now it's a start. Here is the end result with out the winch.

LOOKING GOOD!!!

I love the 4XG Matrix. That, the front guard and bigger tires with the 2 inch lift give the XK attitude and altitude .

Matrix

I just got my Matrix and grill hoop via Fedex yesterday. I did not have tow hooks previously, did you order that part you say you need from your dealer? More importantly, it says on the 4xGuard website that there are 4 mounting locations for auxiliary lighting. I see where you mounted your two, where are the mounting holes for another set? I am looking at some sweet PIA's and want to get a set of fogs and a set of driving lights.

Thanks!

The other set are under the cross member, so you can mount two on top (like ERNURSE) and two smaller ones in the middle on the bottom.
