Because it is a time-consuming PITA, to be avoided if possible. I had to remove 10
rivets and drill all the holes out to 1/2" on the rear frame of my FJ60 too accommodate my new 4x4 Labs rear bumper. Granted, torching and grinding the rivets off was part of the task that took a fair amount of time, but drilling those holes out was certainly a lot of work, which I would avoid if possible.
I still say 10mm bolts are just fine for the front bumper of a 40.
