Led Light Bar mounted in lower bumper

I installed a 30" light bar into the lower opening of my bumper. No fab need just dremel out the inside of the to fit light bar. Took pictures as much as i could.







used angled iron 35" this was the first test on how we mounted it but we turned around because was sticking out of bumper. have about 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch spacing this way

again, this is the first test. Turn the angle iron around for more flush. As well used spaced to bring iron above top of bumper rail. use plenty of spacers.

here is it with the angled iron turned around. sorry bad pic forgot to take pics when turned around


then assemble

Yeah the angled iron seems stronger as well. The switch I used was a otrattw switch. Works good and wired with dash lights which works great!

did you have to get anything extra to switch it other than buying the new switch?
