led light bar in lower bumper?

So i tried to dig up some photos of led light bars mounted in the lower part of the front bumper on a first gen...i cant find any pictures to see what it looks like. Someone made a thread awhile back asking the same question but no one responded...so anyone have pictures of this on a first gen..
thanks in advance
(Also i have a picture of one on a second gen just to clarify what im talking about)

It's the 21s from blitzpro. So it's 21 inches long.

I tried doing that with the blitzpro 21s too. I couldn't get the damn bumper off because the nuts were so rusted. So I just drilled into the chrome portion of the bumper and mounted it there. I'm eventually getting a new plate or tube bumper anyway so whatever.

I will eventually be utilizing my bar elsewhere and getting two light force spots. The led bar is nice, but it really isn't anything but a big fog lamp.

Hid fogs? Hmm never seen them. I had roof lights on my jeep they were cheapo halogens but i put high intensity. Bulbs in them. Had to use a thick gauge wire too. And the were pretty bright but i think the led looks brighter. But i might look into hid fogs just out of curiousity just cuz i like to learn new things

Not HID fogs.

A fog light is not supposed t be bright but a nice low intensity light with a wide spread meant to be mounted as low as possible. They work great in foggy dusty situations.

A hid should go up higher due to the power. I'd put TW hella 500 converted hid lights behind the grill.

Led bar would be a nice fill light with the HIDs.

So the driving lamps are the spot lights like what you have on your roof rack, right? Just not hid

I believe mine are the FFs. Which has sorta a hybrid lens to help cast light a bit wider while still retaining a main sport.

But yes. Basically the driving lights.
