lights behind the grill

I want to hear some ideas about putting lights behind the grill. What lights have you installed? How easy was the install? I like the look, but I'm not sure how to go about it.

well i had them and didnt like em... yeah they look cool but the grill blocks alot of the light...

Light wise, i hit up the wal-mart... they got a nice selection (the brands are the same as advance auto)

really dont get over a 55W light, any higher watts will start to melt your grill there is 55w procomp lights that are 5" on www.4wheelparts.com for about $15 each you just have to supply your own relay and wire and switch.

would the push bar you showed me yesterday block the tow hooks on the front of my truck? I like the Westin Safari bar, but the lights would block the tow hooks. I was toying with the idea of mounting the lights behind the grill because its less to install.

No the Go Rhino bar SHOULD not cover the tow hooks at all! and it looks good. I am a sucker for center push bars i dont like the part the covers the head lights

i went with hella 500 fogs. they lit up the night and looked good too.

wiring was easier then a cake walk. only problem i had wasnt a real problem. drilling the holes and then i only had less then an 8th of a turn each time so it took a while.

easy install and hellas can be found for $70 a pair or less.
