    Picked up a set of Hella 500ffs from my local 4WP today. Gonna mount them tomorrow afternoon. My question is would there be any problem with drilling directly into the plastic bumper when mounting them? I don’t mind drilling it, just wondering if they’d stay upwards and not rotate off to the side. Thanks

    Your biggest problem will be a lack of structure which will lead to the lights bouncing up and down when you go over bumps. A secondary problem will be hurting the resale value of your truck with the two very visible holes in the bumper cover.
