Once found, you then place a bolt from behind and "fish" it through.

The back bracket uses two Tbolts that fit into Two predrilled holes.

The actual boards are then attached with four bolts....two on each bracket.

Hope this helps.
Thanks! Man! I'm sure this info should be useful for everyone here who like to do so DIY project... btw...

Heads up for you guys:

I ordered in channel vent shades for my sportage from Amazon, and the auto configuator said they would fit my 2011....but they do not. Their for 05-09.
I must say the return policy and customer service has been great concerning this mistake.

You can get it from ebay.. i think it cost around US199... it have all the other matching colors. Just only took less that 3 mins to install. No drilling required.

I ordered the exact same running boards from CarID.com - and after charging my credit card almost $400, they sent me an email telling me that they were backordered 8-12 weeks. I cancelled the order.

Nice front and rear skid plate. I want to order one but afraid the rear wont fit since I have an SX and the rear bumper is shaped a little different and because of the dual exhaust.

So far I have added new badges, replaced the horns, replaced the antenna with 1.75in carbon fiber antenna.In a week or two, my Euro running boards will be coming in after a six weeks of waiting. And near future is to replace the headlights with 2 way leds parking/turning signals and HIDs. Ill post pics when I Im finished.

Thanks for this bit of information, I have an SX as well and completely forgot about the dual exhaust and never realized that the rear bumper is slightly different...saved me a few $$$.
