question on KC headlights

I have a custom grill I wanna get some lights installed behind it. What is the best brand for your buck, also do they easily mount?

That's called a full depth Satoshi. Some people have to get either thin lights or relocate the horns, depending on how big the lights you buy are.

If you really want to make sure lights fit, I would probably bite the bullet, get the B.A.M.F behind the grill light bracket, and a 21'' or 30'' LED lightbar. The Blitzpro 21'' is about the same price as putting 3 or 4 lights on, if not cheaper. It would look really good, in my opinion, centered (horizontal and vertical) behind a plain Satoshi.

You can mount other lights to it, doesnt have to be a LED light bar. There is other methods also, buying the bamf light bar is just the easiest
