They are right under the header panel near the frame rails

You can't miss them.

They look like slightly over grown relays on a inverted U mounting bracket.

Each, just above the frame rail, attached to the radiator core support.

You will not hit them with any type of bumper installation.

Thanks guys. I actually think jc whitney sent me the wrong part because the groove is too small for the plastic top molding of the bumper. Might send it back. Might just try to improvise.
