LED Bar mounting options? Photoshop inside

Just bought a Hawk 21S 21" LED bar from BlitzPro via the group buy! Can't beat that price ($163.00 w/CA Tax).







Now I'm stuck on where to mount it when I get it. Here are the 3 possibilities I photoshopped. Size is approximate...

In the bumper after cutting out the vertical plastic pieces with a dremel.



Onto the flat section of the brushguard (I'll be replacing this with a Demello 3 hoop bumper as soon as I get some extra cash).



Roof mounted. Not really wanting to drill holes in my roof, and no plans for a roof rack as of now.

I agree the lower valance is the best looking.

Yeah that's my ideal setup. With my Icon coilovers coming in next week, I couldn't justify spending another $163...but I'll be ordering another one soon
