Mounting Lights on front

Ok, How can I mount my Warn 6" round lights to the front other than with a full brush guard (like I currently have). I'm guessing a bull bar is the next option, but I'm worried a bull bar will block the use of my factory Fog lights which I really like. Ideas?

Behind the grill, never thought of that wonder how bright they would be? Can't really tell the brightness from the video but they sure look good

My buddies have them mounted behind the grille. I think it looks good, but I'm personally not a fan of doing it to mine. I like the light bar that jostaman posted. THAT IS THE TICKET!!! Thanks jostaman! I won'thave 4 lights... just 2

Thats a nice bar alright, but a tad expensive and it isn't even chromed Most of the light bars are to large, in your face looking and this one is fuctional and looks like it belongs there. Now I can't decide which way to go again
