Question mounting a custom built brush gard on 2013 taco

I hunt at nite and look for tracks in two track sand trails and want to mount 2 each fog lights and driving lights on a custom built brush gard that i am going to make. I've looked at all the ready made bully bars but consider them all too frail for the front of my truck. I intend to build my own out of a combo of rectangular & square tubing. I intend to leave the original factory plastic bumper on & come out ahead of it by coming up from underneath.My question is does any body have any suggestion about how to make the mount hookup to the frame? Any help anyone can offer would be greatly appreciated!

Check out the AVID light bar. They are amazingly well built and much stronger than the bull bars...

Worst case, check them out and see how they mount. Very simple...

Better set up your suspension first cause what you want to do will be too heavy for a stock setup
