^^That's a link to a how-to on doing your own light tabs. No Drilling to your truck at all. Works on 98-05 trucks. I have no clue if your truck has the bolts in the right places, but this is the best option, imo, if your don't want to drill into your bumper.

Here's mine:

Before with virtually the same measurements as Wayne's tabs, but with the Slimlites.

Comparison between my old tabs and my new tabs. I believe I followed the diagram of what Jusnes and Underdog sells when i made the first set...except for the thickness of the first set of tabs.

Then you could add a crossmember, and bam! you got 4 lights!

If you're talking about the light tabs for the bumpers it doesn't matter. The tabs are attatched directly to the bumper and go where ever the bumper goes (you take the bumper off, the lights come off. You lift the bumper with lift brackets, the lights go up 3" with the bumper). Wayne recently had a thread on how to make some since he's having problems bending them right now.

To elaborate on this.....

The light tabs are attached using an existing bumper bolt. To install lite/light tabs, take the bolt out, put the tab against the bumper, run the bolt through the tab then into the nutsert, then tighten the bolt.

The PA bodylift brackets, i believe, use the stock mounting spots on the bumper to mount.......so your good to go there, just a little differnt being that the PA kit uses bolts and nuts, unlike the stock bolt into fixed nut. If i'm wrong, you could always just use a 3/8 bolt & nut through the hole in the bumper where the light tabs normally mount.

These pics are the best pics i got in regard to location........basically under the bottom corners of the grille, backside of bumper....
