I did this back in '03 when mine was new. Toughest challenge is to settle on a suitable mounting point. It was too difficult for me to mount them on the top of the bumper cover because of the layout of the support structure underneath.
I had the set shown below on a garage shelf for years, so my solution was essentially "free", though the bulb filaments were brittle from age, and burned out in only a year or two. Mine (and the set I've replaced them with when one of the original's lenses cracked) are mounted to the vertical fins in the grill.
The primary disadvantage of my arrangement is that it requires "dropping" the entire grill front to change a burned out bulb, though I can do that in less than 15 minutes now. I've had some years of practice.
Wiring, fusing and switchwork were no problems, since I have experience from adding auxiliary lights to my vehicles for 35+ years.
Way too lazy to do that much work! Originally, I intended to mount my air horns to the backs of those grills, but discovered too late that there's only about an inch of clearance behind the passenger side opening -- the windshield washer fluid tank is immediately behind that spot. So, no deal.Whats going on with the round holes in the fog light hole cover? Did you drill those?
I did mine like this for simple DRL's and like them so far. They are LED, so not bright enough to light up the road like halogens, but do what I wanted them to, get people's attention here in the land of "pull-out-in-front-of you"! I intend to add a normal closed relay to this LED bar to turn them off when the headlights come on when the weather warms up and I feel like laying on the garage floor again.
Hope this and other options make your decision easier!
The only con that I could think of would be that if you chose that location for driving lights,they would work/perform fairly decent.Now if you were going to install fog lights,I'd think they wouldn't work to their full potential,as for best results,fog lights are usually mounted lower and out to the corners on a vehicle.Has anyone added lights like these, directly on their bumper?
here's a rough photoshop of what i mean.
I'm thinking of doing it. any cons 2 this idea?
