    Just bought a set of Hella 500 Black Magic driving lights and am wondering what the best way to mount them is. I don't want to install a bull bar or light bar that protrudes past the front of the truck as I have limited space in my garage to walk by. Has anybody had success mounting the lights to the stock bumper? Is there enough meat in the bumper to mount them and not have them bouncing around when driving? I could make a mount under the stock bumper to stiffen things up but thought I should ask before making it. Thanks in advance! :)

    Yes you can. Seen it before. You can drill into your crash beam.
