Looking for a thread

I can't find it. I could have sworn I saw it on Jeep Forum. THere were sevral people who were installing a JK hood light bar on the front bumper of a KK with some hella or KC lights.

I have the light bar now and want to take another look at the thread before drilling, but I can't find it.
Does anyone know the thread i'm referring to?

Here's the light bar:

Great! Thanks.

I cut the bracket with my dremel already and sprayed it with some black Rustoleum(didn't know if it'd rust).
I'm going to use some hexhead bolts with the pointed tip and some pretty aggressive threads.

Questions:
1) How far forward can I put the bolts? (I plan on just bolting the front two holes of the light bar)
2) My bolts are 3" long. Is that long enough/too long?
3) Do you know what's inside the bumper? Can I really tighten it down hard or should I just snug the bolts up?
3) My lights are Hella 500's, and during my test fit I noticed that they bump the top of the bar because the mount point if lower the the bar. Did you have that issue with the KC Slimlights?

I only used the 2 front bolts and used the bolts that came with. So far its pretty solid. I dont know how long the bolts that came with are but i would shoot to have the bolts be about that size since we know it works. Yes i added some washers to lift the lights up so they could be pointed downward more.

Thanks,

I'll mount it once it warms up a bit and post some pics when I'm done.
