I don't have any pictures. I think you would have to cut off the plate to make a big difference. I didn't want to cut up the factory mounts so I added a brace that is welded about 10" back on the vertical piece that the tow hook is mounted to. I is attached to two of the bolts that hold the bumper to the end of the frame.
The bumper comes with two large brackets that mount to the end of the frame and then the bumper bolts to it. The mounting holes are rather large and slotted. I did not like that either so once I had everything lined up where I wanted it, I removed the bumper from the end of the frame and welded the brackets to the bumper.
If you can weld or have access to someone that can, it can be made a lot better than if you don't.
