    I am buying a 20" light bar. The mounts that previously held hid 7" lights don't match up. Does anyone have any suggestions other than welding something else on? I don't want to repaint this bumper yet. The first picture is the mounts and the second is the dimensions.

    This.

    Kinda like what I did with mine for the valence install. Except rotated to the underside of the bar. Except you can make yours straight and bolt it down using the leg mounts it comes with.

    You could get two "L" shaped brackets for like joining to support beams and cut, paint and mount them. Cost about $6 for two.
