I was looking today for a place to add a set of lights but there isn't really any space that I can think of. What have ya'll done for this besides adding a light bar or anything like that? I look behind the grill but there isn't much room and the cross bars on the grill wouldn't let much light through.2004 GMC Sierra SLT 6.0L 4x4

something ive been looking at is a Carr light bar....
enkei avalanche has one and likes it, and i talked to a guy today that has it on his jeep and he loves it. seems solidly built and its kinda stealth, not super noticeable.

I have seen guys put these behind the grill, They fit between the bars. I have also seen then installed in the top slots in the bumper, just above the front license plate. (chrome on your truck) I have also seen them installed above the tow hooks. http://www.piaa.com/automotive-lamps/halogen-2100.html . They measure 2 1/8" in height. These measure 2 1/16" in height http://www.piaa.com/automotive-lamps/halogen-2000.html

I like the first set you sent I'll check them out. There is a tiny slot they might fit in. I don't really care for that Carr light bar it looks weak

We used to sell and install those at our shop and then we stopped. There is normally only one reason a shop stops selling an item...that's my input on those flimsy, worthless light bars lol.

It's not that they aren't strong. They definitely are not rigid. We got a lot of complaints about light movement going down the road.

Yeah I'm starting to look into some LEDs. I could definitely see how there would be light movement especially on a not so smooth road.
