Not being a PO is valid reason. :-)
Better from a strength standpoint if both holes are aligned, the same size and the connection is snug, though. But with 10 bolts it's not critical. Same with my ARB, 14 bolts of various size attach that sucker. Worried? Nah. If it was a winch plate on top of the frame horns with 4 bolts, might be more careful.

"Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security. " --Albert Einstein
