The aluminum bumpers use a little bit larger tube. 5" OD, 4.5" ID vs steel at 4.5" OD 4.25"ID

So...I took a little different tack to get this some idea done. The fernco fititng was clutch, but the zip ties would not work for me.

I used the Relentless "L" brackets and the edge fo the light buckets to hold the fernco and used the hose clamp to secure the whole rig to the bumper. I might add a couple self tapping screws or some similar to add some more security.

More details/photos here

I went this route as well, just tweaked it a little bit. My fernco came with a 4" & 3" clamp, and I used both. Put the fog in the rubber, and it will be tight!! But it will go on, just have to work it a little. I notched the front of the fernco so it would clear the mounting tab. I put the larger clamp over the front of the rubber and L bracket supplied from Eric. And thought good enough. Except they point right at the ground. So, take the other smaller clamp, and put it around the back smaller part of the fernco and the back of the L bracket. The L bracket isn't quite long enough for the clamp to stay on very good, so as a temporary fix, I've used a zip tie to keep it from slipping off. Now to adjust, just tighten the rear, smaller hose clamp to bring the beam up.
Drive and enjoy!!
Heres a pic in case my rambling doesn't make sense.

OP, if it isn't ok to post this here let me know and ill take it down.

I've got two of these 4X3 Fernco fittings if anyone wants them. I decided to go with aftermarket LED's. I can't return the fittings because I notched the back for the connectors. I'll send them out for the cost of Flat Rate USPS so you'll save a couple bucks.

I thought the steel was 4". The stock fogs fit perfect in my steel bumper with the fernco. My Dad's aluminum bumper is supposed to be here this week or next. I will see what we can do to get them in there.
