Post some pictures of the tunnel extension and of your tunnel, maybe someone will have some ideas. Having never extended a tunnel, I'm not sure of what I would do. If it's something that you can take off the existing bumper and attach the other one using rivets, it will look more factory. If not, riveting braces to the existing tunnel may be an option, just make sure not to poke holes in the heat exchanger or cooling system...

Bolts work, but rivets seldom fall out

Line it all up like you want it, overlap the edges enough so you can drill holes and rivet it.
