Sometimes, they're the only lights I have... :P



Do you live near by? Lol... We have about that much snow here weekly-ish!





The holes were already there on mine, but if I recall correctly, I made new holes to mount mine the upper ones, outwards frome the originals, and used the old holes to run my wires through.

The ones lowest I drilled new holes. three for each light if I recall correctly. two forthe mounting bracket, adn an extra to run the wires in through.

I understand your pains about drilling/making holes.

If i didnt already have holes, i would have waited til I fabbed up a grill guard/deer/bull/bush guard deal before I mounted the lights.
On one hand, i feel kinda bad, but on the other hand, the PO had already wrecked it.. so whatever.

I felt worse about mounting the switch for them. The PO also had a switch screwed into the interior on the dash. I removed the old fried switch and replaced it with a new one for the Upper driving lights. the lower/second set has a switch that just stickied itself, which I mounted an inch or two above the other one. Its easily removable and damage free when I get around to redoig all my electrical.

The other random switch I have is to control the electrical part of my sol-vac. its just ziptied to my stering ciolum. When I get around to redoing my ligthts, I will fab a brackcet and have them all zip tied to my steering colloum. Or if I can get ahold of a center console thingy, mount em on there.

I feel your pain and wish there were no holes in my bimper... buuut.. too little too late.

My biggest problem now is,I plan to fab a sort of lightbar to go across the roof with lights on it, but how do I run the wiing without drilling holes in the roof or duct taping the wirings to the front side posts.... ????? UGH!!

I would like to add Fog Lamps to my Eagle. I have the original dash mounted switch and the wiring harness from interior, but I DO NOT want to drill holes in my bumper. Where could I mount them, or how without doing so? I would like it to look original.

I mounted mine underneath without drilling holes.  However, we don't have front plates in Arkansas.  (Heck, some people don't even have back plates. ;))
It may be possible to use longer bolts and mount both the plate and a bracket.  Of course, you have accomplished your mission already.  Looks good.
