You can buy tabs from jusnes.....wait i dont think he makes them for a 99.....

You can do what i did and just custom make brackets, but use thick metal so they dont bounce everywhere....

(when you get them that is) lol

Yeah I made tabs too, 1/8" thick, 1" wide, 6" long, bed at 2"/4" 90 degrees with a 3/8" hole. Cost about $6.95 for both with extra iron left over.

Not with those lights, they're little things, probably 2" x 5"s or so, now if you put a big 6" KC Daylighter on their I'm sure it would a bit, but not very much at all with those lights, the light will flop around more than the tab.
