They seem to fit here above the fog lamp where it attaches to the bumper:

They are some type of reinforcement so that the bolts dont rip though the valance, not sure how well they really work though.

Will do. Thanx

Also I wont rip it off again because I don't offroad it anymore. I'm trying to sell it. I personally think my truck looks better without it and it does give me a better approach angle.
