    Im thinking of cutting out the center of the stock grill to put in driving lights in the middle side by side. I was gonna use some cheap hellas becuz you can pick those up at an Autozone for like 80 bucks. I was wondering if anyone has done it and if they have any ideas on a easier light to mount inside the grill or any tricks on how to do it.

    There are some pictures of the brackets in my picture/profile area for the bracket set up.

    Knight, didnt you find that the lights were kinda springy or shook alot because the thin front grill crossbar? I tried mine like that but had no luck. Had to use angle iron.
