    I want to mount some lights behind my grillcraft. Does anyone have a good way of doing this? My lights have a bit of weight to them so I do not want to mount them on any plastic. I prefer to mount them on a bracket that is bolted to a steel member. It looks like I will have to relocate the horns and work around the tranny cooler. I have seen a mod on this forum that mounts them on the plastic grill with some steel reinforcement but this is not for me. Any ideas/pics would be appreciated.
