WAAG Center Grille Guard

How difficult would it be to mount 2 functional lights to the center bar of these?

I would imagine that it would come with two mounting locations to begin with, if not, just drill two holes...done!

Thats what I'm unsure about. I've seen em with lights. This item doesn't claim to have holes or mounting light hardware. Would one just run the lights through the grille?

Or down and behind the bumper. Depends where the wires are.

You dont need any hardware, the lights you choose will come with everything you need to mount them. If there are not two holes for mounting lights on the center plate/bar (Looks flat to me though) on the guard then you will just need to drill two holes after deciding where you want the lights at on the plate.

Where I'm from we wouldn't drill holes, we'd use duct tape!

Good find.

I've run both, and in my opinion, the PIAA's are way better. I'm sure there are people here that will disagree. Just my .02

Its probably the closest I'm gonna get.

Now the question is...do I keep it black or have it painted dark shadow grey?

I thought bout it but I don't know. Alot of money getting tied up into it. There is black trim on the truck so maybe it'll look fine.
