Lights in Road Armor Bumper

Just recently added a road armor stealth winch bumper to my truck. It has a spot for 4 of the PIAA lights in it, but im really wanting to go with led lights possibly something like rigid industry lights.

Has anyone added lights to their bumpers? I just don't want it to look funny having a square light in a round hole. So any input would be great. Thanks.

Buy a round LED light. Vision X makes them and they're brighter than Rigid's and have a lifetime warranty.

Square lights, round hole. Yeah, you'd look like the kindergarten flunky.

Yeah I'm really liking the light cannon from vision x but it's a 4.5" light, I just need to see if a 4.5" light can be squeezed in there or if I only have exactly 4" to fit a light. It seems like they only make either a 3.5",4.5, or 6" or bigger round led. So I may have to end up going with a 3.5".

I really appreciate the help though everyone!

It won't fit right inside the hole but I am assuming your bumper has a short pipe hole for the lights like mine does so just mount it so that the light is right up against the end of the pipe. The light is 4.72” wide to the OUTSIDE edges and the frame around the lense is probably at least a 1/2" wide so my calculation is that the lense would not be covered up at all even if it was in a 3.72" hole. My bumper lights I left about 1/8" back of the pipe hole so that snow and what-not could still get around the light and not fill up the pipe against the light.

Look into the Solstice series from Vision X. They offer a 4" round in that particular model. I have the Solstice Prime 4" squares in my factory fog light location and those suckers are bright. If you want something cheap and bright, they're utility series has some 4" rounds that are nice and are offered in a 3 watt LED or a 5 watt LED. I was looking at getting some of those mounted for some auxiliary lighting on my truck. If you call Vision X, you might be able to get something custom made, like a 4" round housing with 10 watt LEDs in it. They've done custom work for me in the past including dual beams and custom optics.
