On the 2010 & some of the 2011 they did not come with the mounting holes to install the brace. TPiS makes a "kit" to be able to install the factory brace.

Yes. They are all the same (except ZL1).

Hard to believe the adapter kit is more expensive than the brace itself!

Only for the 2010 and early 2011s. Anything newer is a direct bolt on

The adapter kit requires drilling so why not drill and bolt the brace right on?

I see, I wasn't aware. I just thought it wasn't pre drilled.

I just picked up the same bar on amazon. I had banked a bunch of points off my cc and I bought it. Then it didn't come with bolts, so I called amazon and they have me an additional 20% back so the thing cost be about 8 bucks lol. I'm looking to powdercoat it but I want to do 2 different colors and the place my friend knows sous it can only be done 1. Trying to figure out what color I want to do, and if I can paint over the PC with another color. I have paint to do it, but I know it can get hot and in not sure if the paint will be able to withstand the operating temperature in the summer.
