Rockhard rear bumper install questions

I bought a used Rockhard rear bumper. It came with two large "L" brackets with two nuts welded on each one. I did not get instructions with the bumper.

Can anyone tell me where the "L" brackets go? I can't see where they match up.

They do fit inside the frame rail, but the holes are covered by the bumper flanges/mounts. They are not meant to be side plates with this bumper. I'm starting to think he seller gave me brackets for a different bumper. He had more than one for sale.

I almost positive your are right. When I put my rockhard 4x4 rear bumper on my 2011 jkur there wasnt any brackets like that with it.

Got the bumper installed except for a few bolts. The seller did have an XRC bumper for sale, so these must have been for that.
