Which lights are those?
They look like hella 500's.

If they are, you should be able to use the mounting hardware to attach them to a bar mounted vertically behind each light... they'd look like they're floating in the grille.

There some $60 headlights I dono what kind.

I'm going to have to buy 1" smaller spotlights then put them on. Here's a pic of what I did, I cut out more then I'm going to put a long metal plate underneath and mount it to that. That way they are in my grill mounted apposed to mounting them on my bumper.

Okay so I'm 90 percent finished all I have to do is wire the thing. I got a strip of metal and ran that under, attached the spotlights. (very hard fit but I made it possible)

But I have to say my ranger looks 100 times better!

I'll post better pictures up tomarow.

I also don't have my grill behind my grill.

I have no idea why, but this made me think of this:



Looks pretty cool, man. Get some better pics with a real camera!

how good are your fiberglassing skills. if you think you could do it. wrap the back of the light with painters tape, then cover with tin foil. start layering with fiberglass, let it dry a bit till the resin is still tacky, then add another layer, keep doing this till you get to an 1/8 in thick. do both lights at the same time so you can just switch from one to the other. then when you have that thickness let them dry throughly. remove from the light and cut the edges smooth and flush. use a 2 part epoxy to mount to the grille for a temp solution and get some t-shirt material fabric. stretch it over the new light dishes and to the grille to make a nice flowing connection. Forgot to add drill holes where the fabric will attach to the grille for the fiberglass resin to sink in and make a solid connection between the two. add resin to the fabric, and when that gets tacky start adding more fiberglass, after that get ready for some fun sanding. use a fiber reinforced body filler. sand smooth. Paint. drill holes in the dishes for the wires. drill holes through the light housing and the enhanced grille to run bolts through both. expoxy the bolt into the light housing so you just have to attach at the back of the grille. then just re-assemble and attach the grille back to the truck and enjoy.

its a lot of work but if you take your time and do it right i will look great.

----------

after typing all of that up now i want to do my own truck.
