    I purchased some inexpensive LED Bolt lights from Amazon for some rock lights. I've seen other members with these too, can't beat the price.

    While underneath my Taco looking for mounting locations I saw a location up front that looked ideal, so here you go.





    Once unbolted the piece just slides out. The LED bolt fits perfect in the hole. No washer needed just the nut. Run the wires through the top gap. The hardest part of this whole task was getting the nut threaded....









    Ideally I would like more of a flood light, maybe I will swap out in the future, but for less than $4 who can complain.

    Wire the lights and you are good to go!

    Pretty neat. I would note that some plate bumpers use those holes.

    On my truck those extensions were ditched immediately to create clearance for rock crawling. Not to mention that spot is about as vulnerable as it gets for crawling. I'd try and get them higher up for the two obvious reasons I just touched on but to also spread that light pattern out a bit.
