Go Rhino! Grillguard Help

Hello. Today I purchased a second hand Go Rhino Grillguard for my 1999 LD F250 (7 Lug). It is in very good condition and with a good wash/polish/wax will look like new. It was supposedly for a 1997 to 2003 F150. The fellow I purchased it from said it was on a 2000 F150.
I held it up and it indeed looks model/year correct.
I think though I am missing a couple brackets. I did get a bag of bolts and there are 2 brackets that look like they attach to the grillguard and go through the gap between the grill and bumper (although they seem to rub top and bottom).

But I think I am missing some sort of bottom brackets. Is there a bracket that goes under the factory tow hook and bolts to the bottom of the grillguard or something? . There are 2 holes on each side of the grillguard and it measures about 25 1/2 inches between the two uprights.

If someone has one of these could you please take a look at you rig? Or maybe post a couple pics of the mounting. With a bit of time I'm sure I could fab a couple up but need somewhere to start. Thanks.

I know on my 01 f150 I added the bullbar and I had to remove the factory tow hooks to bolt it on. Kinda sucks but I don't offroad it so....

Actually I ended up fabricating brackets that turned out quite good. I was able to keep my tow hooks too.
