Behind the grille lights

I remember seeing a members truck on here that had lights mounted behind the factory grille. It was a factory chrome package grille but I cannot seem to find it. Anyone know who it is. I am wanting to know how he mounted the lights or whether there is a light bar for this.

Looking to buy again

You can fab up a mounting bracket and secure it to the fiberglass radiator support. Should not be too bad once you find the lights you want to run.

I mounted my lights on a piece of half inch angle with brackets welded to it hold the lights. I drilled holes thru the fiberglass support behind the grill.I purchased my completely chrome stock 1999 grille off Ebay. It was around eighty dollars shipped. I hope this helps.
