OEM Toyota hitch question

I just got an OEM Toyota trailer hitch and installed it. I was just wondering, is it 100% necessary to have the two 19mm bolts by the license plate area?

It would guarantee that you could tow the rated load of the hitch/truck. If you don't intend to tow the rated weight you could possibly get away with out them. It would transfer more of the load to the other fasteners though. I personally would install them.
