Rear JCR DIY Bumper Question

Welding together a front and rear bumper for my friend with a YJ.

On the rear bumper, he bought a "Frame Tie-In Kit" for the bumper. (He plans on towing a trailer with a dirtbike so figured it was a good idea.)

Anyways, i can't for the life of me figure out where these brackets are suppose to go. The instructions (which totally suck) say that they needed to be welded on, but doesn't mention where.

Anyone have a clue where they're suppose to go?

frame rail tie ins...they bolt into a TJ, but have to be welded to a YJ's frame since there are no bolts going through the frame back in that location

Like the picture above, they reinforce the rear crossmember, not the bumper.
