2001 tow hitch installation question

I'm going to install a hitch I got from a used parts yard. I have the hitch, wiring harness, and the bezel.

The attached diagram shows 2 braces that come with the hitch if you purchase it from the dealer, but I don't have these.

Any problems not using them?
Can they be installed later when I can find some?

Thanks

Not sure what effect they'd have with towing not having them, but everything will still go on ok, without. When I pulled my hitch, I just left them attached. Not sure why they'd leave them on the vehicle. On my ZJ, the hitch was similar but without having any braces on it. Should be no problem putting them on afterwards, or fab'ing up your own. There really isn't much to them. Picture a tubular piece that's pinched at the ends with holes to bolt into the hitch at one end, the rear of the jeep at the other.

The beatings will continue until attitudes improve!

Thank you.
The beer and the tools are already in the driveway ready to go tomorrow morning.
