Default light brackets??

Just picked these up on ebay for $175! Set of PIAA's to mount in the grill.
But uh now i need to find a bracket to mount them on. I found a site that has brackets but said they wouldnt work for a 06+ ranger. Any ideas?

you could see if they mount upside down on the rad support upper bracket instead of buying a bracket

i think i can get my dad to make some brackets.. now its just a matter of figuring out where exactly to mount them and what to mount them to. I want them at the bottom of the grille just above the bumper Kinda like these ..

There should be two bolts on the back side of your bumper. That is how the Ranger pictured above has them mounted. If you remove your grill, you will see two bolt 7/16th's if I remember correctly. If you don't have the holes, just drill them yourself and find two bolts. I have the same setup as the guy above and I used the below light mounts.

**Disregard my avatar picture, that is no longer my setup.

They're actually 13mm IIRC.
