Looks good DasJeep. How did you go about mounting them to the grille? Maybee could you post some pics of the mounting points or from the inside of the engine bay. Any other details of the install would be greatly appreciated thanks and once again looks good

Its a light bar I fabbed and welded to the 2 radiator supports that go from the upper radiator support to the front bumper. I still have to paint it. I may manufacture a few if the demand arises. The manufactured product will be bolt on. if you look close you can see the silver bar behind the grille, these are on very solid and will not shake as they would if mounted to the grille or bumper directly.

Looks great! I had the same dilemma- with or without, I decided I liked them better without the grills.

Will wiring instructions come with as well? I'm a complete novice when it comes to electricity.

Chrome ones would probably look better on it. And I prefer wire rather than plastic, but that's just a personal opinion.
