On the instruction sheet there is usually a number to call Hunter. Or the Web site address. Contact them, First !! Save yourself a bunch of aggravation!

Update:

I called Truck Gear direct today becuase they never called me as they said they would inthe email. I was told to get dimenions for an upper bracket and that they would make me one. I mentioned that the gurd is too low because of the lower mounting brackets and asked if I could send them an appropriate design from AutoCad to have them made, She said yes and that they will help me anyway possible :) This is good news and good thing I know how to us drafting software, maybe because that is what I am going to school for

good work. I am glad to hear that things are looking up. And to think you may be responsible for the correct fitting of the brush guard for the '09/'10 models

That's great news Zach. However, if things go sideways, let me know and I may be in a position to take that one off your hands.

It's been awhile but now that I am on spring break from school I had a chance to do some measuring and tinkering. I came up with the best solution of moving the mounting bracket holes 2" forward and up on centers. I plan on sending out the drawing tomorrow and hopefully they will follow through and make the new brackets.

I think the guard looks "decent", not as good as it could if it was actually made for the 2009-10 models but still does's the job I guess.

first 2 pictures shows the comparison of spacing/ the profile change between models.












holes need moved up/forward as seen here

Hunter Finally sent me my new brackets after designing them for them 3 months ago.... I mounted it on today and have decided that I think it looks really bad on the 2009, even though I really want a brushguard I think I'm going to sell this one and hope that someone actually makes one to fitit properly. Time to sell this one.

Sorry that you went through the troubles and weren't happy with the results, unfortunately, I have to agree with you. I love the brushguards, but I don't think it flows with the lines on the front of the new body style. I am considering the Hunter for my own E which is an 04, but I believe the bars are going to require a redesign to look good on the 09 and up. I am sure you won't have any problems selling that unit here on the forums. Let us know.
