Frame brace for smittybilt rear bumper

I just saw these and would like to add support for my smittybilt rear bumper with tire carrier. I'm running a 33 and jack and it weighs a bunch. Would this kit line up with the outer holes through the crossmember to the outer bumper holes?

Yes, any brand frame tie in brackets should work fine. They mount to the existing frame and bolt through the stock bumper bracket holes.

Just a thought, but if you find a set closer to these Jeep TJ/LJ Rear Frame Tie-in's - Jeep TJ/LJ - Jeep Specific without the hard 90 degree angle in them you may avoid some hassles - depending on how clean the welds on your frame are

Yes, those will work. Really not needed. Originally SB had some brackets liek that with the TJ bumper but changed the design of the bumper to a boxed design that held on to the rear crossmember with 8 bolts, plus one on the bottom of the frame rail. they still passed the DOT testing for having a rated receiver hitch. A little extra wont hurt though.
