Currie base plate install

Sold my TJ and purchased a 2017 JKUR. Bought the Currie base plate to tow the Jeep behind my RV. Took my grinder to the tabs at the end of the frame rail as the instructions advise.
Started the install of the Currie base plate today but had a real hard time getting the top holes lined up. Was able to get the bolts in the end holes but was unable to line up the two inside holes. I'm doing this on my own and was able to use my floor jack to help hold up the base plate. Had a two level fusion to my low back a couple years ago so it's not real easy getting up and down off the floor of the garage.

Hoping someone out there might have some tips or tricks to help complete this project. I enjoy doing the work and would rather not hire this out.

Thanks for any pointers you might have!
