Default How did you mount your Auxiliary Lighting?

Short of having to use a prefabricated light bar (i.e. rally innovations light bar), how did you mount your auxiliary fog/driving lamps? Self fabricated bracket? What mounting points did you use? Drilled into bumper beam? [i'm trying to avoid that last option...]

Pics would be nice too.

Default depends on size and heft.

depending on the size of your lights and their weight, there are plenty of places to attach to behind the grill. I had some small lights mounted in the grill.

I made the brackets myself from some stuff at Lowes. There are a couple places on the bumper beam you could use as well as bending some metal and hanging them through the grill like the picture you have already posted. I started out with some fairly thick sheet bars and a really big hammer and anvil.

There are a couple of posts already that have some homegrown brackets. I think if you do a search for Hella FF1000s you will find a few more hits.

But I am sure you know what I ended with...

I'm still jealous...

[could probably swallow pets and small children with that thing...]

I'm still saving money for one eventually...

I've got some Hella 530s so they're relatively large...

[well relatively small to what you've got...]

not really, but I know you can fry large quantities of night time bugs. They get all crackly and crispy after awhile. Real hard to get of the lexan covers.

I've had an eye on your thread for a while now ATX25RS. What did you use for the brackets that mount to the top radiator bolts? (and the dimensions on them could be quite useful, if you happen to remember).
