Icon10 fogs

i am about to purchase some kc lights.. and i was curious if i was to mount them behind my grill if it would obstruct my radiator from helping cool my motor... i think it would look cool to have a billet grill and then... BAM!! i got bright fogs ... leave some feedback..

Sweet Mod

Yeah i did the same mod about 3 months ago to the 98 Ranger it was fairly easy and looks sweet, i would recommend it to anyone. You just have to fab a bracket for the lights out of a sturdy piece of metal. And if your looking for a sick way to mount a light switch inside your truck look no further than the cup holder. There is a big spot of plastic in between the two holders just remove the cupholder from the truck, mark the center, use a half inch drill bit and drill, then use a step drill bit to make the hole a tiny bit larger(about 7/8"). I bought a small square L.E.D. switch from Advanced Auto Parts, they are availiable in many colors. Just be careful i bought Hella Off-road driving lights 100watts a piece and they are so bright i cant even burn them during the day because it will blind people and they can't see at all!!!!!!!!!! So just burn them when appropriate. Have at it!

i got the switch in the same spot Does not the 100 watt light fry the plastic grill when they are on for any period of time?

I don't think it'll obstruct your radiator. It'll look awesome. Some pics would be nice. :)

Yea I'd like to see some pictures of your install. My front grille is just begging for some KC's behind it.
