the radiator does extend down to the holes, but if you need a bumper by monday, you can get away with it. in the summer though if you are gonna tow heavy loads up 7 percent grades i would keep an eye on the temp gauge.

You should be fine without the cutouts. Most aftermarket bumpers I have seen don't have them.
