Hitch bezel template

Does anyone have a hitch bezel template? I finally got a hitch, and I can't see the perforated lines in the back of the bumper to cut it for installation.

If it comes down to it, I can just get the bezel kit from the dealer.

I purchased the bezel kit from the dealer, and it didn't have the template. It did have extra plastic pin things for the bumper though.
Once I got the bumper off, I hit the underside with a rag and water, and was able to see the guide marks for cutting. Used a rotozip to cut it out, and that left some raised areas from the heat, but I wasn't concerned with that. Drilled holes in the guide marks. All is well.

Thank you. I just ordered mine so I 'll probably get the same thing. I'll take my bumper off soon and pray there are some markings I guess.

The bezel installation instructions make mention of a template, but I can't find an actual downloadable template anywhere on that page.

I took my rear bumper off yesterday and cleaned it off really well. I'm 100% positive there were no guide marks showing where to drill or cut. I bought my WJ used a couple years ago so it's possible it has an aftermarket rear bumper.

Does anyone have a template I could print out? Or has anyone else been in this situation and figured out how to make their own template and cut out the opening in the rear bumper?

I'm trying to remember if there was an actual template in the bezel install kit. I remember the lines for being cut were in the bumper, but they were pretty faint.
