Grabbed some scrap and fabbed up a rough bracket. Going to make a Home Depot run tomorrow and make a more presentable bracket.

That looks pretty cool. Are those the kc slims.

No they're the hellas from behind my grill.

Aspen Creek just started making windshield light brackets that attach to the latches of your hood. I was interested until they came back with a 59 dollar price tag. If you come up with a solid design and cheaper price, there may be a market for these!

does that block your view?

With those lights probably, but a couple of smaller LEDs and you'd be golden. Made a second attempt, might try a little different design tomorrow.

A set of Rigid Dually spots would do well there and stay mostly out of line of sight.

Or better yet a set of SRM2s! You wouldn't even know they were there.

Aspen creek sells mounts for a windshield lights now. They look pretty good

Not a big fan of the aspen creek ones, I think they sit too far forward.

Interesting. I'm thinking about a bit more light but I don't want to mount spotlights on the bumper and have thought about putting them behind the grill. Anyone got any pics of them in action ?

I have the prototype at the fabricator, when I get them back I will mount some lights and post more pics

Here's an update, the original design sat too high for my liking. Here's the new prototype, the light mounted is right a 5" wide, the smaller Dually sized 3" wide light will look a lot better.
