1) mock nerf bars up to frame
2) drill holes in frame where nerf bars will bolt on
3) bolt the nerf bars on

Then they've got to be the wrong model for your vehicle - that's what I'd think atleast

Just because they were in the back of a truck doesn't mean they fit it.

hes got a 73-91 the old body style that they made the blazers with the removeable hard top for. Like killer bs fullsize.

Maybe it wasnt for that model VWboy and someone just stuffed it in the trunk. :shrug: Did you test fit it on the sub at the yard ? (kick me in the nads for knowing what junk VWboy runs lol )
