Also, if you have a 98-00, you may want to extend the length of them about 1/8th - 1/4 of an inch, and drill the hole that much further out too. The studs on my lights contact the chrome bumper, and if the hole were out that much more, it would be a perfect fit.

Where exactly do these mount. The pics I saw of them showed just above the front bumper but I cannot find any bolt holes to mount them.

I agree with matt. make the length 6" and put the hole back 1" from the end. That'll clear the bumper better and keep the lights from hitting the grill.

Rudy, look at this. You should be able to pinpoint the holes from looking at it:
