How to Install the Pilot Bully NR Series Bull Bar on a 1995 Chevrolet C/K Series Pickup

Today on our 1995 Chevy CK Series we're going to install the Pilot Bully NR-Series stainless steel 3" bull bar, part number NR-101. Now here's what our bully bar's going to look like once it's installed. The bully bar is constructed with a mandrel-bent stainless steel tubing with a mirrored polish bar and plate, offering a seamless weld construction. It's a heavy duty 3" diameter stainless steel tubing. Additionally, the bottom mirrored plate is removable. Here in the crosstube there are two plugs.

You remove the plugs and it's pre-drilled holes so you can mount fog lights or running lights. Let's go ahead and show you how to install it now. Now to begin our install, because our vehicle is equipped with factory-mounted tow hooks, won't remove them. To remove them there are two bolts for a total of four fasteners, two on each side. After we remove the bolts we'll go ahead and pull the tow hook out and set it aside, as it will not be reinstalled. Now once we have the tow hook and hardware out of the way you'll notice here inside the frame is a nut plate.

It's where the hardware will thread into once we line it up with the manufacturer's existing holes in the frame. Now with our passenger side done I'll move over to the driver side and repeat the same process. Now note, vehicles that do not have factory-mounted tow hooks with the nut plate in the frame, there's additional hardware with bolt plates that can be fed into the frame and down through the attachment points. The bolt plate will go down through the attachment point and then a plastic clear disc will slide onto the bolt plate to hold it in position while you install your lower brackets. Because this application had factory-mounted tow hooks we're going to go right to mounting the brackets. The lower bracket is going to attach here to the bottom of the frame using the slotted holes.

The other two holes will be for attaching the bully bar to the bracket. To secure our bracket to the frame we're going to use the new 12mm bolt, split lock washer, and flat washer provided with our install kit. Let's go ahead and install our fasteners now. Now as we install these fasteners we're just going to install them loosely until I get both of the lower bracket fasteners in place. Then I can secure them hand tight. Keep in mind that each process we do here on one side will get repeated identically on the opposite side.

Note, some of the nut plates can build up with rust, dust, dirt and debris and the threads can be a little corroded so I'm going to spray each one with a little spray lubricant to make it a little easier for the new hardware to thread in. Next we're ready to position the bully bar here on the outside of the brackets. To secure the bully bar to the bracket we're going to use the 12mm bolt and flat washer going through the bracket built onto the bully bar, through the frame bracket, where we'll then secure it with a second flat washer, split lock washer, and then a nut. When you installed the bully bar it will cover up the bumper-mounted license plate so we're going to go ahead and remove the license plate bracket. Now with the license plate bracket out of the way we're ready to go ahead and install our bully bar. It's a good idea to get an extra set of hands to help you install it. Once we have the bully bar fed through the front fascia where we removed the old tow hook we'll take our bolt and flat washer, feed it through the bully bar, through the frame-mounted bracket, install the second flat washer, split lock washer, and then a nut. We're just going to install our hardware finger tight at this time. Now once we have the bully bar in place we'll make sure that the bottom frame brackets are even on both sides and then tighten them down. Then we can tighten down the bracket to bully bar fasteners. There you have it for the install and review of the Pilot Bully NR-Series stainless steel 3" bull bar, part number NR-101, for our 1995 Chevy CK-Series. .
