Help!!! Mounting Nerf Bars with Existing Bolts

Can someone, PLEASE HELP !!?? There are two holes in the front and one in rear to mount my bars, and the front use existing bolts that i found, but the backs line up with the 3rd set of body bushings before the rear tire.
Is this where they go ???

I know its a noob question, and so I am, but it just doesn't seem like thats where they should go.

Yes undo the body mount bolt, jack up the body (may need to loosen other body bolts) and slide in.

THANK YOU !!! I know it might not mean much, but thank you. Everything I found said something about drilling holes in one place or another. And this was me......

If you cant match up enough holes I would not drill more into the frame. My last nerf bars that I went to install on my 01 stated that I would need to drill several holes into the frame to mount. I did not like that idea so I just had the bars welded on by a muffler shop for cheap. That way they were as secure as they could get, no additional holes in frame to rust out, and if I ever wanted to remove them I could just grind off the welds and still have a nice solid frame.

There are different style nerf bars. The one that were on the jeep when I got it, the rear went on the body bolt. The Mopar ones I picked up mounted on the tub subframe. Two holes needed to be drilled. No big deal.
