where do lights look best?

i want some off road lights like KCs or something but i dont know where they would look the best. on the bumper? behind the grill? get a roll bar? bull bar? light bar? i was never a fan of light bars but after seeing my buddys jeep in the dark w/ the 3 lights on i will consider one now. i want at least 2 lights somewhere in front and possibly some on top depending on how people think it would look.
what ya think?

I used to have 4 on a headache rack type thing, it looked sweet, but it wasn't on very well so I took it off and have been too lazy to re-install it.

if you get a bull bar remember you have a body lift and need to modify the brackets to lift it up..

light tabs are light tabs lol they go on the bumper and lights mount to them...

do a search you will get alot of hits..

Got mine mounted up on my brush guard. It came pre-drilled with the holes, and threaded for the lights to mount.

yeah i think so too. i think i might just put them behind the grill so they will be there and i can use them but they wont stand out unless it at night. gotta get a billet grill for that bc i dont think much lights gonna shine through my stock grill.
anyone had any experience w/ the ebay billet grill inserts?

I just got my Hella's working Friday, they're behind my grille, have been all the time I've owned it, just haven't had them hooked up.

I bought another set, debating on putting em on the bumper, or taking em back and returning them.

On tabs, a tube buper, or on a light bar. I don't like bullbars or brushguards at all, my truck had one and took it off the first week.
