Failing to see how I'm being A) self-important or B) a blow-hard. I'm asking a simple thing, post unique mods or relevant things. Haven't seen any of either from you. Not hard to understand my dislike of your posts and attitude. Genius.

I've found two bolts on the mid section of the radiator support. If I twist the mounting flat bar for the hella horns, I can get them to stay within the bumper cover but angled upwards such that the sound projects to the outside, instead of inside.

I'm a big fan of those lower grill meshes, but to be honest, it's REALLY easy to work on the stuff between the bumper and the radiator when I can access them from that gap. Hell, back when I only had hella horns, I installed them without ever taking off the bumper/grill thanks to that.
I'd almost suggest pointing them downward so maybe they would reflect the sound upward off the ground. You know, since they are "directional" and all. Blast pattern on everything in front is a direction, kind of..... Pretty ingenious/lazy installing them through the hole. Only takes a few minutes to get the bumper cover off though, lol. Then again, I'm biased, I can't fit my baboon arms in there with the cover on anyways. I second installing them in the foglight spots, just put mesh in front of them. Dude on IWSTI has a crazy build that he used some chopped-up and fiber-glassed flower pots as a part of his covers. Here's the post: LINK.

Like that sort of, just with mesh in the front end, maybe a few layers to prevent too much crap from getting in.

That's what I ended up doing.... Worked well enough, I think. Until the raccoon "modified" my bumper.... Stupid raccoon...
