solved my lighting problem

after sticking the winch behind the tube bumper, i had to cut off the bumper light tabs so the winch can fit. So i ordered flood light brackets so i can keep my fog lights. But having them up to high isnt the same as having them on the bumper. So when i was walking through the homedepot hardware department i found these little square plates with a hole in the middle that ressemble a light tab

They are only 60 cents a piece a home depot. so i found a place to mount them and welded it on

thats my dumb#$% welding with sandals on


after the tabs were welded on, i ran to discount auto parts and found these lights that are made by hella, 100w, long range. They are 50 dollars and are almost as bright as my kc's. they did the job though and look identical to my kc's.

after mounting the new lights, i then wired it up

finished

This is any easy way to have any lights in ur desired location. i will soon put some driving lights on my rear bumper with these tabs.

hey that looks very nice.

i did it in the same way.
when i install a winch i have to move my fogs to the outside of the bumper where you installed your lights.

this is pics of the winch plate i have that will work with your bumper



its a tight fit but its works out perfect. As u can see the roller fairlead is pretty much on the bumper, dont worry, it can adjust a little more up in the top holes. This plate is probly ur best bet
