Angry Quadratec QR4 Side Step issue

Well, this is my first post and I hope I am posting it in the right section. I bought a Wrangler (2012 Sport 2 door) a couple of months ago and picked up a set of Quadratec QR4 Side Steps. The only "off road" use the Jeep will get is driving on the beach so I don't need sliders or anything like that. I tried to install them today and what should have taken 45 minutes has turned into 3 hours. The brackets that came with them don't match any of the pictures in the manual. The brackets are marked Front and Rear but not Driver or Passenger. Although the brackets attach to the Jeep easily the holes to attach the actual step to the brackets never line up. The brackets are always too close together. I have tried every possible combination of the 4 brackets to no avail. As I stated earlier the brackets in the box do not match the brackets in the pictures in the instruction manual. I initially thought they might have upgraded or changed the brackets but now I am wondering if these are for another application. Has anyone out there run into this problem?

You really have to look close to the pics, it is very easy to switch the sides, and bolt them up behind the pinch weld not in front. I had to run a tap in one of the holes in the Jeep because of the nut had a lot of paint in it . They go on, you have to look real close at the instrutions. It would help if they marked which side faces front. and then make sure the tube is on the right side....

PS I had them flipped too, and was getting mad a such a simple add on, Hang in there ,they do fit...

Thanks for the reply Tombstone! I finally got it worked out. This frustration could easily be avoided by properly labeling the parts. Thanks again!

No Problem, 35 years of working on vehicles from small powered equipment to the largest roadable cranes, I felt pretty stupid I couldn't bolt up a simple bolt on item!!! So don't feel bad the instructions are not that clear...
