Tube bumpers and tow points

I've got a 2012 2 door. I replaced my stock bumper with a tube bumper. Unfortunately, I lost the tow points off the front and back when I did that. I've seen some replacement tow points online for older models but nothing for the JK and it doesn't look like the tow points will just "drop in". I don't think the bumper can support pulling anything. Has anyone got a JK with tube bumpers and tow points?

I have these tow hooks 11236.02 - Tow Hook Black For 1942-06 Jeep CJ and Wrangler | DiscountJeepParts.com
on the front of my Jeep. They are attached to the frame below the bumper. I don't have a clear picture of them, but you can see the muddy bottom edge of them in this picture. Just to the right of the mud on the left of the bumper and just to the left of the license plate.

I see them. Do they bolt into existing holes or did you have to drill into the frame? I've seen tow hooks like that. It looks like you've got yours turned sideways. How'd you mount them?

Is that a Rugged Ridge bumper? It looks like mine only mine is chrome.

Yes, it is a Rugged Ridge bumper and the hooks are mounted sideways in existing holes. There is also a Rugged Ridge skidplate on the front.
