skid plate bolt removal

i was under there today looking at them so i can straighten out my plate and was curious if i missed any. there is two on the crossmember, 2 or 4 at the side ( i am missing 2 if there are 4 from last year...) then i can't see the ones at the front behind the bumper. are there 2 up there or is there more?

When I put mine on it was 2 at the cross member then 4 on the bottom of the frame and that was it.

I have 2 on each rail and had to weld the skid to the cross member for obvious reasons.

It is real common to destroy the bolts, if you rub the bottom of the skid along rocks. I have sheared a few.
