    I just installed a new bull bar. I have not had one before, My trouble is that I expected to see vertical holes drilled into the bar to install lights down through but the light bar has small 1/2 holes on the back and I cannot figure out how to use those to install piaa lights.. Anyone have some suggestions or is there a mount that is designed to utilize these?

    you won't be able to run the wires inside the bull bar which you have figured out already, what i did when i had a bar was tape them with black duct tape or electrical tape to the bar where it goes inside the bumper so it will look clean. i would not drill a hole in the bull bar other wise it will rust out. hope that helps

    Thanks for the help, that sounds like a good plan. Now I need to figure out what mount I need to order. Seems like there is some kind of mount. Check this photo out. Anyone know what mount this is that is attached to the holes from above holding the lights?

    most light mounts are welded to the bar..well all the ones ive seen are. I hope you can find some brackets to bolt on though, good luck!

    called the seller and the dealer told me it should have been in the box. They are going to send the mounts so that is what a deal! Pending delivery
