Default Warn grille guard mounting advice

Ok, I took a gamble and bought a Warn grill guard off of craigslist tonight. It's got some light surface rust and needs a clean coat of paint, but it has the mounting bolts and was taken off a Ford Ranger.

What I (in my noobishness) didn't consider is that the mounting systems for different years are going to be different, as bumper styles change etc. Warn's website says there are no parts (to get instructions for) when I try looking up a 2001 Ranger guard, so I suspect I may have screwed myself.

I'll snap some pics in the morning, but for now: Does anyone know where I can get PDF installation instructions for a Warn grill guard that would fit on a 2001? That way I can at least see if mine is likely to fit.

The Warn website installation instructions "picker" refuses to admit they have ever made a damn thing for the Ford Ranger

Guess I'll have to call them tomorrow from work.

UPDATE: Got an email back from customer service. Apparently they only make guards for the 4WD Rangers, so I am going to need custom brackets

Anyone have any idea where I could get such a thing? Off to Google some more...............
