Let's see your Fog lights!!
« on: February 05, 2010, 08:07:03 PM »
I Bought a set of Cheapo Amber 80's Hair band looking fog lights and I want to mount them above the front bumper.

But....... without drilling into the bumper.   I crawled up under the front bumper and I see a channel in there I ought to be able to mount a brackets that run up and have a bend in them to mount them.


So No matter if you drilled into the bumper or not please post some pics of your Fog lights or driving lights.

Maybe it'll give me more incentive to mount mine! :)

Mine are just aftermarkets too, I've had them for several years and they're showing their age now. My bumper already had holes drilled from the factory and had plugs in them, so I just had to bolt them on and wire them up. They really help out on those foggy mornings.

I mounted some after market lights below the bumper.  I used a piece of angle iron for a bracket.
I mounted it to some bolts that were already in place so I wouldn't have to drill holes.
I have since replaced the lights with clear ones, mounted to the same bracket.

you could do like some of the others and fab up some brackets. have a tab you can slip onto one of the bolts that holds the bumpers on and have a piece of flatbar that runs over to where you'd want the lights and comes up enough you can bolt your light onto.
