Got the KC's Mounted but need ideas...

Got them mounted today. Its the cheap 10 dollar fix until I find what I am really going to do with them. They are mounted where the tow hooks are supposed to be mounted but since I am body lifted I don't like how you have to cut out the lower valance to fit the tow hooks. So after I find out what I am going to do with my tow hooks I'll find a place for the KC's. Ideas welcome if ya got any!

Looks good man!

For the tow hook solution, Go with a front hitch. If you know someone with a welder its not to hard.

looks good! I'd say if you need to move them, put them straight up from where they are on top of the bumper it would look good if you could somehow make some light tabs like you have now.

Wouldn't that reduce your light output though?

Not sure, they'd be somewhat level with the headlights. They did it on some Fiddy's it looked pretty sweet......Idk how well it'd work on a Mazda or Ranger

I like the ones in the last picture that sit flush with the grill. That's a cool idea.

yea, go straight up from where they are now. alon has light mounts for sale. go look in the classified section. i think his mount to the top of the bumper.

our you could do what clayton said and leave the lights there and mount a hitch in between them

I think I decided that I am going to do the hitch in the front I just have to wait till my dad gets his 2500 square foot shop built so I have access to a welder again. Everything is in storage right now.

Yeah front hitch is the way to go. So much more functional than just hooks and even stronger.
