Are you not able to stack the recovery boards on top of each other, like they show in the Amazon listing?

I wish haha. The recovery boards I purchased are much larger than the ones in the pic on the listing. I improvised to make both boards fit.

It took some elbow grease but it buffs out. Certainly not a plug & play😅.

The material under the bronco sports side rails has a little give to them. If you apply enough pressure the mount will secure itself under the side rails. From there seal the deal using a steel zip tie(I'm gonna catch some heat for this lol) and string it through both holes around the side rail. Pic below.

Why do you have so many washers under it, is that to make room for the other track to mount?

The washers don't allow the recovery boards to wobble or create friction noise "click-clacking" off the mount.

The recovery boards I have are entirely too large to mount stacked on top off each other with the front runner mount.
