light bar install question

R/r light bar install question
I have an 09 JK on which I installed a Blue Ox Base plate for towing behind an Rv. I ordered a RUGGED RIDGE light bar for the bumper. It came in great shape, but with the base plate installed I can't use the original holes to install the brackets for the bar. I would like to keep the bar and not send it back. If you have any ideas or past experience with this I would appreciate any help. I do not want to weld the brackets to the base plate if possible. Thanks very much.

if you took a picture of the location in question and forwarded that to the tech support group at RR would they not be able to make a recommendation?

Light bar info

Thanks Driver
I did email them and they never heard of my problem, but suggested I drill on the Blue Ox plates. I may give that a try, I just didn't want to weaken the integrity of the plates. This is a great forum and I have learned a lot about RVing. Now I'm learning a lot about Jeeping on the Jeep forums. Lol.
Thanks for your response and the great forum
