Stone guard help

OK kids. I have decided to attach my stone guard on our 2001 Discovery. I crawled under it to mount the chains and found so many bolts that I was afraid to loosen I backed out. I'm chicken to mess with what appear to be bolts that attach the body to the frame. Anyone want to help the old chicken?

Pretty coach. On our old 98 Discovery, the stone guard was attached to the frame at the bumper to frame bolts. On our current Expedition, it is connected the same way. Hope this helps some.

Thank you folks. I already have the stone guard. The original owner never took it out of the box.

Have you check to see if it is going drag when you are on level ground, It looks like in the picture that the ground in the back drops off, and looks to be close to ground.

My thoughts exactly it could be my old eyes.

Looks good, but might be a bit low. When you sit on level ground with the air bags filled, does it hit the pavement? hope not.

Looks like a lot of "rocks" can get over it. I believe it's too low. Maybe 3 to 4 inches below the frame? Nice lookin coach!

I think you all may be correct. Since it's my first one to install (hopefully, last) I am glad to have the input. Soon as the rain stops I'll get it on a level spot and take a look.
Thanks to all.

If you raise rock guard, be careful and not let it touch your diesel exhaust pipe. Most say that rock guard should be at least 4 to 5 inches above ground. Might want to mount it a little more forward from where you have it now??
