it mounts to your frame under the car, however you have to take off the sheild under your car to gain access to the frame and then make two thin cuts to allow the arms to penetrate. it comes in two peices, one part attatches to the frame and the other part is exposed bull bar. ill put in some pics as soon as i can.

The bar comes with brackets that mount to the frame rails your suspension mounts to via u-bolts, then the bar just bolts to the brackets

My future plan for mods include BFG AT ko, flowmaster exhaust, and K@N cold air intake.

I didn't have to remove or cut anything on mine.

It's not really designed for the trailhawk as it cut approach angle significantly and requires the skid pan to be cut. I am also not a fan of the mounting as a small tap from the front will easily push it into the front bumper.

I agree with you that it is more cosmetic than functional, but I did bounce it off a guardrail going to work in a snowstorm last winter, it only moved a little bit and saved my front end from taking damage, as far as off roading goes I'm more of a mudder than a rock crawler and I still have been able to negotiate some nasty hills without hinderence and it gave me a place to mount lights to.
