    I am wanting to mount some aux driving and/or fog lights on my '05 z71 but am unsure of how I want to mount them. I love having tons of lighting:glasses:, I feel it just makes it look that much more intimidating. I am looking for opinions on different mounting options. I am kind of on a budget but would love to hear all of my options. If anyone has pictures that would be great too. Thanks guys...

    I am not a fan of those roll-over bars put behind their cab just to mount lights on, so I say your best bet is mounting them behind your grille. Plenty of space and really easy to run the wires!

    I like the bull bar or light bar option. It keeps the lights in the right place, and adds a little character, and to some degree, protection for the grill. What kind of lights are you looking at? The Hella Black Magics are 8" lights, and would limit your mounting options, for example.

    I 2nd the lights behind the grille. I put them behind the grille of my NNBS and also had them on my '07 Silverado Classic. IMO I think it is the cleanest way to mount aux lights.

    You can mount them on a light bar, behind the grill, on a roof rack, or if you have a BackRack or any other sort of headache rack you can mount lights on that.

    i like the ideas of 'behind the grille' and think you would want fairly large as the grille would steal some light from the actual wattage or brightness. I would think that mounting brackets could be made out of plumbers or duct work ceiling hangers?? Looking at some pics here, I think I might try fogs in the spring behind my grille (my LS would need new corner fenders to even have one set )(2010 Crew 2WD )
