    Alright I know some 1st gen fella's were asking how I mounted my fog lights on my truck so here ya go. ok I used to have a Westin Grille Guard for those that didn't know. Well on a mudding run with some buddies, I bent up my guard while getting towed out. well I decided to remove the brush guard, but i wanted to keep my hella 500's. So as I was taking it off I noticed that the two brackets that go through the opening in the bumper held my lights so farely well. So I mounted 'em and love it.
    here's some pics enjoy!!
    Ok heres what the lights look like mounted, just your regular 500's from advanced auto

    Ok the brackets mount to the bumper supports. the holes the bolt goes through should already be there.

    If your Westin Bull Bar got messed up last time you were wheeling, then this setup by far will get dominated immediately.

    Looks good for the street, though.

    He's just trying to solidify the notion that if you were to go offroad with that setup, it will most likely break, and shove the metal brackets into the radiator that it is dangerously close to, thus opening your radiator.

    But you're not going offroad anymore :(
