Soooo, how much grinding should I have to do to get these rails to fit? I have only tried the dirvers side so far. Back bracket fits on the bolts perfectly but the front hole on the front bracket won't line up. Grinded the hole to make it bigger but still can't the damn thing on?

Anyone have any tips? I don't want to gind too much

It shouldn't take too much. I did have to grind one of mine a bit to get it to fit, but there was still plenty of steel forward of the expanded bolt hole when I was done.

Which way did you have to grind? Towards the interior or towards the outside of the vehicle?

It looks like I need to expand the hole towards the interior

I don't remember for sure, but I think it was toward the interior and a bit forward. Either way, as woansleftpeg said, it wasn't much. Mine may have been 3/16".
