Just added a grill guard-light holder-stinger bar. Whatever you want to call it.

If you slow down, plan it out hopefully you won't have to do it all over again. In other words, just do it right the first time.
Has always worked for me.

Now the wiring job. Start with good battery.

Use plenty big wire 1/0 welding cable crimped and heat shrink ends.
