I put mine in the black plastic with the eye bolts pointing down (to better conceal them) and it works fine.
The reason they give you the large washers is so you can put the eye bolts in plastic.
Don't worry if you have follow the contour of the bumper to get your 54" the protect-a-tow has plenty of stretch in it.
Hope this helps
