First, is the frame square, then you can measure from factory hole to body on both sides. That would put it straight on the frame. Then put the radiator support on then the inner fenders. If every thing goes on with no problems the fenders and hood can go on. There is some slack in the bolt holes were things can be pushed and pulled to help line every thing up. Good luck, it just take a little adjusting to get everything looking good.
