Smittbilt SRC front install problem. HELP

Hey all-

I just got a smittybilt src front bumper. Looks great on my jeep. My problem is how did you get a wrench on the 2 outside nuts at the bottom of the skid plate? They are right under the frame horns and seem impossible to tighten. What tool did you use? A socket will fit in the space but there is no room to move it once on. Help

No room for an extension either it is directly under the frame rail and nut is put on from top side
