Underdog Light bar/tabs on an 07

I installed some fog lights this weekend with the help of my dad. They are the 130W KC slimlights. I used the Underdog light bar and tabs. Yes I have an 07, but I modified the bar and placement of the tabs.

I used the header panel behind the grille. It is pretty thick fiberglass, so theres no problem with strength. I talked to Shane (Fx4wannabe01) a while back, and he agreed that it would be a good place for it. I really liked how his light bar looks, so yes i did base my look off his haha.

Because the grille clips on the header panel/grille are about the same place as the holes on the bar for the tabs, my dad and I cut off about 1.5" from one side, then re-drilled one of the holes on the bar. It worked out pretty well. Im thinking now that the holes will be a little off for when i put on two more slimlights (some long range ones). Im not completely sure, but if they are then I can just drill some holes. No big deal.

Sorry for the bad pic quality, its from my phone. My camera is in my bros truck at college, and my moms is broken. So ill get better/more pics later.

So thank you Shane for helping me with the idea, and Wayne (Underdog) for the great light bar and tabs!

I can answer any questions you guys have. I hope you like how it turned out. I sure do.

EDIT: Here's where I placed the switch for the lights. I'm not sure if I like it. Its kinda hard to turn on/off when driving, so i may move it later.

They are a little too far out for my liking.

it doesnt look so bad in person, but yeah i agree. i will probably cut the tabs a little to move the bar back.

On my 07 I did something similar except I used L brackets. I shortened one side and drilled the holes out bigger. Afterwards I painted them black and clear coated them.

If so, I want one!

OP: Btw, I like the light bar... but the lights stick out about 1 1/2" too far away from the grill for my taste.
