You could mount them to the frame underneath your front bumper?

the front half of a 93-97 frame isnt the best its different then ours. BUT i acully have these and was gonna make a support bar kinda like a front cross member and they would be welded/bolted to that and they would exit out the gap in our bumpers. just never got around to it...

Save yourself some money, those are $8. I don't know if they come with mounting hardware, but that's an easy find at any Home Depot like place.

Mounted anywhere to the front of the frame should be pretty good, you just might have to cut some holes into the valance for access to them... or you can always take the valance off for when you go wheeling.

The JC whitney ones are a better deal because they come with all of the hardware and are sold in pairs, the ones on northern are singles

I'm curious, why didn't you also get a pair for the rear? I like the ones you got, because they have the spring clip to keep the tow strap or rope from slipping off.
