bumper mounted fogs on Equipe comp bumper

I've already utilized the NAS roll bar light tabs for flood/spot lights. I have an extra auxiliary switch and would somehow like to add two fogs to the front bumper area. I was wondering if anyone has fabbed up brackets or come up with interesting ideas for mounting 2 round auxiliary lights on either side of an Equipe bumper mounted winch? It's the bumper that doesn't have any provisions for extra lights. I was thinking one could use the frame horn mounting bolts- fab brackets that come off of those attachment points. Any ideas/words of wisdom/pics to post would be appreciated.

Have you considered other options like LED light bars? My current plan is to put an LED bar across the top of the grill just below the trim panel and to embed two 90mm flush mount fog lamps in the grille itself, I am doing the grille myself here though. I always found the big round lamps on my ARB on the D2 to block a lot of access space so have been investigating alternatives.

On my 110 I did use brackets coming off the two bolts holding the bumper to the frame. It comes out then up and then out again. It is for my Hella 4000 HIDs and the ballast is mounted on the back of the vertical section. Works quite well, with no noticable vibration - I did use 1/4" steel strap 3" wide - so it is sturdy

Man, if you could snap a couple of shots of that I'd sure appreciate it! That sounds just like what I'm looking for.

I hadn't considered LED's- but there is a light review this month in Overland Journal with some nice Safari Design ones. I hate to say it but I'm a bit vein when it comes to how "cool" my D90 looks, so I'd have to think about that.

Jay, you don't have a lot of options for that bumper. I liked the clean look of it so opted for one without the A-bar on yours. The only thing I can think of is welding some small L brackets to either side of the winch. Or you can have a fab shop bend up an A-bar and weld it in. As a last resort, I can bend you up some 2" tube with some light tabs and you can get it installed.

Or sell your bumper - it's worth over $1k!

Here are some photos. It only works with a normal winch - the big Warn winch/air compressor combo on my 90 is too wide.

Just remember, its much more important to have an obscene amount of light than air going through your radiator. Especially on road.

Good ideas- I may give the brackets or A-bar a try locally. I appreciate the feedback. Last resort would be to unload the bumper and pick up another one with the built in A-bar I guess. Hopefully I'll get distracted by some other project and forget about the auxiliary lights!

This is serious stuff- thank God I'm installing that dual beam Hella work/reverse light... Sometimes those cats and squirrels come outta nowhere!!!

About 10 years ago I saw a disco I with, I kid you not, 17 aux. lights.

3 on the bumper, 4 on the front of the rack, 2 on the back of the rack, and 4 on each side of the rack.
