im having an issue like this as well, i got a couple TruckLite LED HID lights for cheap, and i gota figure out how to mount them, then run wires and stick a switch some place.
i think at this point its gonna be a bull bar, or a Carr Light wing like @Enkeiavalanche has, then mount the switch either in the knee pannel on the left side under the fog light switch, or up high in the doom light area. just not sure, need to sit down and pull some stuff apart and see what i have to work with.
good news is i have wire already. threw away a old vaccum and the cord has what looks like some 10 gauge wire, which should work ok, leds dont pull to much.

Yep . And do you have bucket seats or bench

bench. otherwise its a SLE with the 5.3. i thought about just drilling into the bumper, but I dont wnat to leave permanent holes to mount the lights.
i have the one on the right, and yes its a 12v.

im not a fan of how they look on nnbs trucks actually, or how most of them completly block your tow hooks. i found a nice brush guard i like, but its almost 1000 new. not what i wanna spend.
