There are some vendors that sell a bracket that mounts to the structure surrounding the radiator which in turn you mount your lights to. These can be relitively expensive for some, however you can fabricate a simple bracket from a few pieces of flat stock, drilling holes to fasten the pieces and provide mounting points for the lights.

Here is a link to a retail version;

This is an example of a bar that you could easily fabricate yourself:

Hope this helps

I just used two pieces of 2 inch angle iron. Drilled holes in them. Mounted em right next to the hood latch. Ran the wires up thru the pastic cover above the radiator to the battery looks really clean
