Should bolt to frame extensions or to your bumper braces/supports.

^^ all companies are designed a little different and may require a little ingenuity, but as 007WRX says above, the back ones almost always use the stock rear tow hook bracket. The front can vary, check out the towhook thread for some ideas. Those ones you got look like a self-made job, so maybe ask the person you bought them from?

Already did look through all pages on the tow hook thread,there's only one looks similar, but can't really see it from the other side .Already asked the seller too, but he has no idea how to put it on either, so that why I am asking if anyone has the same one can help me and post some pix on here

That black box is the charcoal canister. It is to keep fuel vapors from escaping from the gas tank. Make sure you dont break that.
