I'm not sure if this will help or not but I found the Install Instructions for those fenders on Warrior's website. They didn't make a whole lot of sense to me I think that could just be because I'm in front of the Jeep. It says in "Phase two" that one bolt should not be used and gives you instructions on how access another one. Hopefully this is helpful! Good Luck.

yea they lloked great untill they faded and all coating flaked off and started to rust.. i had to cut the bolt becouse theres no way to loosen it ether ... i need some sort of hevy duty dry wall anchor type of bolt that would flare in the back and hold its self .. but it needs to be short enugh to make it in the hole as well ... iv thought about trying to sopt weld it, but thats a whole other can of worms ...
