    Iv been thinking about putting off road light behind my mesh grille when it comes in and was just wondering if you have to put some kind of light bar in there for it to fit right?

    I leave my plastic stone guards on the light to catch all of the bug juice and what-not. I take them off, throw them in the dishwasher.......done and done. Adjustments are really easy on my particular lights. Loosen the exposed nuts and move to your desired position, tighten back up.
