that is what i did. be careful threading those front bolts. i had to grind away some of the bracket that it bolts too because the welds on the plate were too thick. if you tried to thread it when everything was tight, it would try and cross-thread really easy. you had to loosen both lower tank bolts, and crash guards to loosen everyhting up. now with the slight grinding, it will line up just fine tight.
