    I'm wanting to mount my 6" off-roads in the grill (1st gen), faces flush with the grill. Cut some of the grill uprights out, let the light shine through.

    I was thinking just take some bar steel, drill some holes and mount it to the bumper, sort of a tang sticking out behind the bumper, mount the lights to them. But occurred to me one little front end bump and they would go right through my radiator.

    Anyone done something like this, figured out a safer way to mount them?

    pm them and see what they did. Should be pretty easy to modify to move the lights forward flush with the grill.

    Hey Jeremy yeah been out and about for a while, lots changed, world is getting better every day! Thought I'd stop by and embarrass myself calling a Nissan a Toyota (mission accomplished) and see what's new. Thanks for the links, I did search (so shush up noobs) but didn't find what I was looking for. J
