Re: Opinions on Lights behind grille

I've had a push bar on every other truck I've owned, but I like the nose of the Jeep by itself. The only protector I've seen that I like is the 4x, but still without the upper hoop, and so I've also thought about putting lights behind the grille.

You don't like the hoop?! How could you possibly not like the hoop?

Re: Opinions on Lights behind grille

OK it actually looks good on your truck, but I think it's because the color. The one I saw on a white truck I didn't like. I think I would have it powdercoated white probably, and chrome just the upper hoop.

Re: Opinions on Lights behind grille

I say do it. But from your sneek peek, I would just do two in those locations, one on each side in the second from the outer grille opening, with none in the middle.

Re: Opinions on Lights behind grille

I gotta say I agree with the majority saying that 3 up front is just too much..
Agree with mTBrunner in the sense that it throws off the shape and flow of the Jeeps front end.. it looked good on the Taco but it suited the stock light shape and form of the front end/grill.. i think it being a pickup helps it as well for some reason (in my mind, at least)

Agree with Mosier with just adding one to the opposite second opening of the grill.. and leaving the middle alone.. it just fits the flow of the front end WAY better..

look at your example image.. you have your headlamps offset wide, the fogs underneath.. and then you would have the two in the grill with the plate in between.. a nice juxtapositon.
Aesthetically speaking... it just looks better to go with 2 and if you are converting them to be bright HIDs, the two will provide plenty of output,even through that SRT grill, IMO.

Re: Opinions on Lights behind grille

Ok guys I have decided thanks to you that I should just put two lights in the 2 first slits of the grille. These will be converted to hid either 55 or 35 watt 6000k. I think it looks good with the srt grille and 2 lights behind it. 3 would be too much.

I think that will look good, and you will have plenty of light.
