Simple light tabs for an 05
I have an 05 XLT 2wd extended cab and wanted to mount a couple of lights on the front. I found there was a bolt on the back of the bumper on each side at just about the right spot. I went to tthe hardware store and bought a strip of aluminum, 1 1/2 wide by about 1/4 thick. I made a couple of L-shaped brackets, measured and drilled two holes in each and mounted them to the bolts behind the bumper. I can see where heavier lights might require steel instead of aluminum, but my lights are not very heavy. Works real nice. I'll try and post some pics if anyone is interested.
