To begin, the order of parts from bottom up: Lower plow attachment, skid plate, frame and then upper plow attachment cross plate.
First, I removed all the skid plate attachment points but I left the back of the skid plate still attached.
I then loosely installed the plow attachment cross plate that sits on top of the frame. I brought the skid plate up to the bottom of the frame. This let me identify and mark out where the ATV plastic on both sides would have to be cut out to allow proper installation of the lower and upper plow attachments.
Next, I cut approximately a 2 inch "U" shaped form out of the ATV plastic on both sides.
Because the skid plate is between the lower and upper plow attachments, the skid plate requires holes be drilled for the bolts that secure the plow attachments together. With the bolts in the upper plow attachment, I brought the skid plate up to the plow attachment bolts to verify that the drill points matched the provided skid plate drilling template that came in the box. I completely removed the skid plate from the ATV and using the template, I drilled the required bolt holes.
From there, I just had to button everything up. First, I made sure the top plow attachment cross plate (with the bolts inserted) was in the correct spot. Next was attaching the skid plate from back to front and passing the plow attachment bolts through the drilled holes. Last, I bolted up the bottom plow attachment to the upper plow attachment cross plate.
The beauty of the Click and Go 2 Plow is, when required, it can be attached in under 20 seconds using the winch and removed in 2 :-) The con of the setup is that, because of the bottom plow attachment, I lose about 1/2 inch of ground clearance for a narrow point across the front middle of the ATV. I had this setup on the my Rincon for years and it never caused a problem.
