I would suggest you just weld them to the frame...

you really shouldn't mount your bumper if its not consensual. Everything after that would just be awkward.

I bought these for attaching my rear bumper:

I made stand-offs out of short pieces of 2"X4" tube steel to go between my bumper and the mounting tabs. I welded those to the mounting tabs then bolted the plates to the frame, then I centered up my bumper on the Jeep, clamped it and tack welded it, then took it off to finish weld it.

Here is my rear bumper thread:

I didn't take any pictures of the process but you may get a better idea of how I did it by looking at the pictures.

I attached my front bumper by cutting up the stock front bumper to make mounting tabs from it. Since it bolts on differently then the rear you don't have to make stand-offs. Just weld them straight to the bumper. Or use your imagination and come up with your own way of doing it.

Post pics if you can...

Make sure you get some frame tie ins for the rear, that thin crossmember back there isn't gonna be happy for long with a bumper and carrier and spare bouncing from it. As for mounting the rear, I took a piece of 2x4x3/16 and cut it in half lengthwise on the 4" side leaving basically two 2x2 c channels. I welded nuts on the inside of the channel and then welded the open side to the bumper and bolted it on from the front side of the crossmember going back.

The front, I made some tabs that welded flush with the top of the bumper and then on the bottom of the bumper (because I used 2x4). The tabs I made were similar to these....

I don't have any pictures right now, but could get some later if it would help.
