It goes through one of the bolts that holds the bumper bracket to the frame. Lotsa people said I shouldn't go with that setup, but the front end of a xl/xlt sucks for hooks if you don't wanna cut up the bumper2frame mounts. I like the look a lot, but after using these so much, they've bent outward a lot and sometimes people are worried about pulling me out from the front, accident waiting to happen, blahblahblah.. so I'm getting a real front crossmember and factory hooks, in a couple weeks..
