It's a lot brighter then it actually looks, the grill blocks out a lot of light honestly for the time being, not only that but I also think that I took the pictures at the wrong exposure. Etc. etc.

I've taken it freeway speeds and nothing. I also had to mount one of the brackets further out to accommodate the spacers as well.

Very nice! It looks just like mine, except a little less. Are you having any trouble angling yours freely past certain points of rotation like I am mine?

I still need to do my grillcraft

I purchased the same lights as you did, but I mounted the pods in my bed on a light bar that is attached to the bed rails.

I was having a bit of trouble at first. I ended up taking the regular mounts and putting them on the ends of the 21". I then angled the BAMF LED mounts at a 45 degree angle and tightened everything up. By using the mounts in that way it allows for up and down adjustment along with some left to right movement.

I have to pull my grill this weekend to install new horns. I'll take a picture and post it then.

I want to see yours from the inside and see how you mounted it. Maybe it might help me in terms of helping towards a higher degree of movement.

This is the best pic I could get with the truck in the garage and the grill still on. You can see the mount on the side of the 21".

Wow. Why didn't I think of that?

My biggest question though is how did you get the oversized bolt to fit through the 1/4" opening of the LED bar brackets?

I used a smaller bolt, washers and a nut w/ nylon. I tried to drill them out but it just wasn't working. So I made a run to Lowes in my wife's Mini and got some smaller bolts.

It took a few test fittings and about 1/2 the day to arrive at this configuration. All I have left is to install my fuse block, relays, and an oil catch can... Oh wait that's a different thread....

Yeah see, lol I hd to get some smaller bolts myself and run somewhat of an interesting setup in order to get it to work. I tried to drill out and rheem a lot of different things but nothing worked so I went back to square one and put a twist to it. Wouldn't you know it that it worked!

Good job on your build bud!
