That's good! 2 points...point one, point two. Connect those two points to the subframe (just in case anyone else wants help with this in the future).

Couldn't find the holes to bolt the brace too... looked at pictures of the 6-pt brace, realized the holes were under the plastic underbody.

Thanks. Maybe I'll install mine. I never did due to the 3" DP interfering. I figured if you had to use several washers/spacers it might reduce the effectiveness to next to nothing.

Not really. Placebo. It is nice for taking really small hits to save your oil pan or DP. really small hits.

Of course I still maintain that the 6 point doesn't do a whole lot either.
