light mounting opinions

Picked up some small LED lights that I'm mounting to my rig. I've got a set of floods and a set of spots. the floods are mounted to my bumper and a 10in LED bar is going on my winch whenever the mount comes in. So i'm looking for opinions on where to mount the spots. heres what I'm thinking so far. Any opinions are helpful: thanks

Ps: legality in va all will be covered no worries

TLDE: where go light?

on top of bumper



on top of flat fender



under flat fender



where else? windshield mounts are a no go with the snorkel.

Can you get them inside the stinger on either side of the winch fairlead? If so, that's where my vote goes.

Mark has one at the top corner of each side of the windshield. I know you want to keep them lower but its an option.

The floods are good where they are (out front, low to mid height)
spots generally do better higher up.... roof or windshield level

That said - how often (if ever) do you really fold your windshield? I'd mount them on (or in place of) the windshield frame rests on the hood
