I have Trail F/X step bars and mine have 4 braces. 2 to the body and 2 to the frame. All I did was modify the ones to the frame and was good to go.

Not hard at all but the only thing I can add from my experience is buy some beer and get a buddy over to help you, it'll go a lot quicker. I did mine by myself and it took a min, lol.
