Question on Brian's Tire Carrier Install

I figure I would post this in case someone else ran into it.

For those who have installed it, did you have to drill fresh holes for the cross member mount? I am okay with drilling new holes but would appreciate suggestion on how to index that in. Dont want to drill more than the holes required.

Thanks for the help,
Nick

Definitely drilled into the rear crossmember.

Thanks James. Yes That definitely helps! Did you run into any surprises when drilling the holes? Or did you just drill them and run the bolts through?
