Default Mounting Location Option For LED Light Bar

Hi guys, looking at getting a LED Light bar for my 2003 Ford ranger and I was wondering what are my options for mounting locations? Wondering if there's any place to install where I won't be changing anything permanently..not sure if that's gonna be an option. But anyway just wondering what my options where. If you have any picture please post them.
Thanks!

Ok thanks! Any idea if a light bar would fit behind the grill without trimming?

a 4" will fit with no trimming. You'll only have room for it on one side of you have a tranny cooler. You can fit a 20" in there but you have to trim the plastic.

Ok thanks, my bad that's what I meant. So if I were to just bolt it down there it would be stable enough?
