Look under the bumper and follow the brackets. Easiest way is to take the bumper off with the brackets attached. And also get some wd-40 or pb blaster and spray all over and let sit, then spray again and let sit, then again and let sit, then get in there and take that bumper off.

Remove the 2 nuts circled in red to remove bumper with bracket. Repeat for other side. If you wanna remove bracket remove 2 nuts circled in blue

No i was just trying to find the right ones. I was confused with the hitch bolts. At first glance i thought it was connected to the bumper

And thanks for the pic STL
