Mounting lights on stock bumper.

I'm ordering some Hella 500s. Will they mount on the stock bumper using the stock lights existing hardware or am I in for a headache?

If they don't then you can easily drill out the existing holes to make em work. Not really a headache

My 500s ALMOST fit in the stock holes. Had to take a drill bit and make em a tad bigger. No big deal if you have good drill bits and a drill. Good luck

You could get a bar that bolts right on to mount the lights to. I think it was like $50.



And those lights on it are 100 watt halogens, metal housing, glass lenses... $15 each.

$47 at Quadratec. HERE is the link.

It uses the existing holes. I'm not near my TJ, but I think my front hooks are mounted on top of the mounting tabs.

Yep, that's it. Mounts right to the stock bumper holes and tow hooks can be bolted down with it, but the stock bolts will need to be replaced with longer ones.
The lights that I have are Blazer 100 watt beams (H3 bulb). Walmart $15 each.

Ummmmm, no. It fits the TJ model.
