try not to mount them on the plastic, i mounted my lights on the plastic part and when i was driving they would shake. the metal part of the bumper is a better place to mount them but thats just my opinion.

Will post pics later, I found out I had pre drilled holes and went and bought corner mounts and used those to make light tabs and both the 500ff and 50ff fit, think I like the 50's better because of the size

Get a billet grille and install the 500s behind your grill

May end up getting a billet or honey comb I'n the future but for now it's just easier to mount on tabs and my skills are not good enough to make a mount to put then
Behind the grille and no clue what to mount to or how to make the brackets

well even if you dont mount the lights behind the grill its still gonna look way cooler with a honeycomb grill. I plan on getting one soon

500s without a doubt

Is that just drilled straight into the plastic, or is there metal underneath inside the bumper

I've got an 06 and am planning on putting Hellas behing the grill, I dont want to put a honeycomb grill from an older model so i was thinking of just mounting them in front of the grill but I'm likeing the billet grill idea now. Anyone know of a good site to order from? I have experience with summit, but by the time it gets to Canada, theres a lot of extra tax with them
