They’re the osram LED’s which use 5 watts instead of the CREE 3 watt led’s. They have retina burning brightness!

First I carefully removed the chrome trim pieces. Then I cut the grill to make room for the grill

If I needed to, I wanted to be able to return the truck to stock using a new grill. So I made these washers. I ground two straight edges from the washer and used a nutsert to make the mounts for the lower bracket..

I don’t have pix with the led mounts. I welded arms to the main bracket, drilled them and mounted the lights. I painted them gloss black, but don’t like the results. I’m gonna remove them and get them powder coated.

i hope this helps.

Lastly, I taped, then cut the chrome trim that I had removed earlier to size. Finally, I snapped them back into place.
