Off Road Lights

I want to install a set of off road lights without having to buy a bull bar or brush gaurd or rack. Is there any way of doing this by mounting them on the car somehow. I would love some ideas. Thank you.

Re: Off Road Lights

What type of bracket did you use to mount them behind the grille.

Re: Off Road Lights

I used an L bracket. Heres a couple pics of them.



I put one light coat of VHT Nightshades on them to give them kind of a stealth look.

Re: Off Road Lights

That's an awesome location! Do you have them wired to a custom switch?

Yea they're wired to their own switch. I mounted it in the small cubby underneath the temp control. If you don't know its there you would never be able to tell.

The grille cuts back on some of the output, but I knew that before I mounted them. Here's a few pics.

Lows, Fogs and Hellas above all the cutoffs lines.


Lows, Fogs, and Hellas in the Hellas beam.


Highs and Hellas in the beam again.
