    I put the Revo one on my Summit.
    However... I modified my back bumper to mount the top bracket between the bumper and bumper bracket.
    As soon as I get to my pc... I'll add the pics in this thread..
    They are already in the thread I started titled "this isn't starting out good"(or something like that.lol)

    The kit comes with new screws to mount the wheelie bar.
    Take the bottom screws out of the Summit and save them.
    Then use the longest screws that come in the kit to replace those.
    When you take the top ones out...the ones that come with the kit will be too short.
    Use the factory ones ones that you took out of the bottom.

    BTW...from a standstill the wheelie bar is pretty much useless.
    In fact...I think it does a standing back flip easier with the wheelie bar.
    It yanks the front tires and then uses the wheelie bar to launch it in the air.lol.
    However...when running at speed...it definitely helps.
    Even more so if you loosen up the rear shocks a little(which incidentally also helps it fly flat when launching off of a jump.With the shocks at the factory setting...when you hit the ramp...it wants to flip over forward.)

    Look at the notch at the bottom of the bumper.
    If you don't notch it...the bumper sits all crooked leaning in at the top and looks horrible.
    You could also mount it to the outside of the bumper...but you would still have to notch the bumper.
