Driving Light Mount Ideas Requested

I am looking at mounting driving lights on my 2006 F350 without drilling into exterior bumper and don't want to run a grille guard. Does anyone know of any inobstrusive mounts available? Once saw one that went in between painted cap and chrome bumper that came out enough to mount lights but couldn't catch the guy to ask where he got them. Any suggestions greatly appreciated or photos if anyone fabricated them.

I know Randy Ellis Designs makes a nice one because I plan on buying one myself. Also KC HiLites makes a bar exactly like it. Heres a pic, its a nice clean looking mount.

have you thought of putting some rigid LEDs in the stock location? I have a set of D2s
that are very bright.

Yeah, but you really can't run the Rigids like a fog light because they're so bright.

But the OP wants driving lights, not fogs.

I could have worded that post better.

The Rigid lights are so bright that they have to be treated like high beams (too bright for oncoming traffic or following another vehicle).
