The lower holes in those brackets originally bolted to the bumper itself, correct? There are no holes in the replacement bumper in the same area?

The lower holes bolted to the frame original bumper - not the way #4 is pictured. Either way you put them on the frame;there's nothing to bolt to on the new bumper.
Jeep Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

I believe the instructions are just incorrect and these will not be used with the new bumper, the only other possibility would be the bumper was manufactured incorrectly and there should be bolt holes there. It's more likely that the instructions are wrong but I will need to look at one in person tomorrow to verify for sure. If you look closer at steps 6 an 7 you'll also notice that the incorrect bumpers are shown being removed and installed for those steps. Instruction errors do sometimes happen.

I thought that may be the case. Let me know what you find out.
Jeep Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

I should be able to get a look at one on the lot in the morning and I'll get back to you as quickly as I can! In the mean time I will continue to research.

Unfortunately I wasn't able to look at one in person today, none we have on the lot have this bumper. The service information only shows the standard bumper with the center brackets. At this point I'm still going to say the instructions are wrong but I will continue to try and get a look at one in person. I have been unable to locate any photos of this bumper from the bottom/front.

If you can find out that's great but there's no way those brackets can be used unless there were parts not shipped with it.
Jeep Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

If there were no holes in the bumper then I'm certain those brackets won't be used.

I was able to verify today in person on a new vehicle that came equipped with this bumper that there should be no holes there and these brackets are not used.
