LED Light Bar Mounting

I just bought a 21.5" dual row LED light bar from kjdavis on here. I want to mount it in the the center opening in the bumper. How do I go about mounting it there?

Make a bracket. How does the lightbar mount? Does it mount from the bottom or the side?

It mounts on the two sides. I believe it's like a pivoting mount so you can adjust the angle of the bar. I don't exactly have the resources to fab up stuff and work on my truck a whole lot now that I live in a condo 90% of the time.

My lights all mount from the bottom and not the side so brackets were just some scrap square tubing with some mounting tabs welded on or flat stock.

By far the easiest way to find a good mounting spot is taking of the front bumper, but if you can't, all you really need are 2 "L" brackets that you can buy at Home Depot in the sheet metal dept. a couple sets of 1/4" hardware should work. I don't know exactly what the inside of the bumper looks like but jbweld if it holds would be the easiest solution, but the brackets should be either welded or through bolted in a discreet location.

Here you can see what I did. I used a piece of close to 30" long of 2"x1/8" aluminum and mounted it to the bumper brackets and then mounted the light bar to that. Here are some pics.
