    It slides down from the top on both sides of the grill. The flaps on the bottom get "tucked in" to the gap between the grill and the top of the bumper

    Hi: Crash68... Thanks!!! I'm handy with some bra straps, but where do these ones hook into?

    Once the temps starts staying around/below about 30°F. You'll probably want to take it off if doing any heavy towing.

    The end flaps go completely behind the grille when you slide the ends down between the headlight and the grill.

    Pull the straps snug and it will be obvious where they attach to the core support cover.

    Dragon , the hardest part is to wash the front of the truck first , and wax whatever you feel good about putting wax on,
    it is to make sure no dirt is left between chrome or paint and get rubbed in all winter long by the cover .
    ..
    In the spring , when removing , you clean the shiny front of cover , and vacuum the Inside part for next winter , no scratches .
    .
    the cover goes on in 1 minute and 20 sec. :
