Where to mount HID ballasts?

i have done the HID conversion in 4 Hella 700FF lights that are on my front bumper(tube). where is a good location to mount all the ballasts so they dont stick out in the open?

it is probably right in front of me where a good spot is, but im having a lapse in judgement and am not seeing it.

it is on a 2nd gen

velcro tape to the inside of the bumper skin/skid..............got pics of ur "tube" bumper?

use the EXTREME velcro tape...............been there done that.

creeks/mud/rain/little bit of air/ruts/ never moved them


this is what I use, got it at lowes.........

the regular black "industrial" velcro tape was absolute SHIT compared to this stuff....Ive tried both
