    so this thread is for all the people including myself that are having trouble with finding a place to put their led light bar and how to do it so post your pics here of your led light bar on your first gen and how you mounted it to not only help me out but other people with the same problem

    Here's how I did my lower ones. Also have a 42" on roof with custom mounts. I am in the process of creating a thread with a ton of pics. I'll link it out when finished.

    This is the way I did it. 21" bar fits perfect in there, I changed to a different 20" and just used a couple spacers and still fits nice. A quick and easy way if you don't want to pull your whole bumper and mount it on the metal beams behind, and it's pretty sturdy too. That valance is perty thick. The ones in the turn signal area were a bitch tho..

    I did mine by attatching big 4 inch magnets to the mounts on the led bar and i can put it on when im offroad but if i have to leave my truck in the open i can take it off so noone steals it. but the magnets scratched the shit out of my roof im painting my truck soon and im going to try and put some felt under each magnet to see if that stops the scratches. it wont fall off either had it on the top going 90 down the interstate and it stayed in place

    I saw this on Youtube earlier today. I think it could be done a little cleaner but it's a start for an idea.

    what lights tdo you have in the turn signal spots? You custom mount those? looks pretty sweet. Been trying to figure out some type of fog light to put in there.

    Gotcha. I never heard of those till recently. Do they grip pretty good inside when tightening? Or do they spin if you crank it down. I realize it doesn't take much to hold these bars but just wondering for future projects if I need them.

    Here is mine. I bought it for use when driving the mountain roads. I am very happy with it. I did have to notch my grill a little bit to get it to sit right.
