    take off glove box door, and remove cardboard/felt insert to get at the nuts.

    also pull the ash tray(and the slider), that will help to get to the left side.

    I had thought the little dimples on the 60 dash were where the grab bar mounts to........but the grab bar just has one bolt on each side.........so thats not it.

    That's because the dimples are for the non-US grab bar, the metal one! :)

    Sean -
    To measure between the holes or studs, go from the left (or right) of one hole/stud to the corresponding side of the other one. Trying to measure from center to center is too imprecise.

    check Montero's at the junkyard. We got ours for about $5. Works great.

    Not identical to stock, but close enough.

    check cruiserparts.net

    That's where I got mine - no pics with me. sorry. But it took me all of 30min. from start to finish/cleanup. My wife is like 5'1" and she likes the fact I installed it.....for "her". ;)

    LP's got it right, pull the glvebox insert and ashtray...that way you can reach behind.

    I got the Non-USA metal grab bar with the leather wrapped around the bar on Ebay from Private Parts 4wd in Australia for around $35 w/ shipping. His phone number is 0414-911-938. Looks almost new. So check ebay often or give him a call. The deals are out there to be found.
