    hello C4 Fab, just read all 15 pages of the write up for the hood scoop mod. I was all set to spend my money and then read about the concerns with water intrusion and then later with the guy that said he had to clean his light out after a year's worth of road grime. Then it hit me, what if you use magnets or wingnuts ( for attachment purposes only) that would be mounted through the oem mesh so that it becomes removable to be cleaned AND keeps the water out of the engine bay? Product innovation and another GROUP BUY for TW members.:boink::woot::welder:

    The whole key to the above was to also include a cutout of glass or plexiglass that would attach to the outside of the mesh for easy cleaning, thanks.

    The one that the OP carries - Rigid 10" SR series. I upgraded to the hyperspot version. OP had best deal I could find at the time. No complaints here.

    I just ordered my bracket, finally!

    What is the inside dimensions between the ears for the light?

    I was literally one of the very first to order and install this setup almost 4yrs ago and have had zero issue with water intrusion and don't see it any different than the grill opening. I suppose road grim and cleaning will have a bit to do with where you live and winters there, but I've never removed mine to clean it and it still looks fairly clean back in there and works excellent. I've got around 40k miles with this bar installed and would still highly recommend this setup and Caleb's / C4Fab bracket. And removel to clean already isn't a big deal if needed.
