    Just find out the size of the lights and measure how much space you have on the bull bar. I think people have at least used PIAA 510's on bull bars.

    540 housings are just under 6" (I believe 5-7/8" OD) plus the mount below.

    EDIT: NVM, I think I'm thinking of the 520's, the link above says they're 5-1/8" O.D. plus the mount

    If you're set on the bullbar, get the bullbar first and measure to see what would fit. I like the look of the bigger lights personally.

    Keep in mind your local laws. You are only allowed to have so many beams when on the road.

    I can't remember which one's I mounted, I did it so long ago :p

    I know they're the fog lights, and you can't have all 6 lights on at once in texas. A cop pulled me over once for that (thankfully just a warning), but hey it had just stopped raining really horribly and I haddn't had a chance to shut off my lights yet. :(.

    I do have this picture, which I hope can help!
