    Anyone know where to get some ditch light brackets for the first Gen? I mounted my Square Rigid's Behind my grill but I am not happy with them in there.
    I wanted to mount them up higher.

    When installing these ditch light mounts just remember the only undo one Bolt at a time on the hood. Otherwise the hood can move on the hinge bracket making it very hard to line up again. It helps to trace out they hinge on the hood so if it does move you have a reference point to go back to.

    I went with the Hot Metal Fab.
    A little sloppy work. And the hardware they gave me sucks I'll get better nuts and bolts and I'll add washers. I'll paint them and throw them on maybe this weekend see how they work. Once they are installed and I'm happy with them I'll weld the two pieces together so I don't have to worry about the nuts n bolts, I'll get (Tamper Proof) hardware to mount my Rigid Pods.

    These bad boys also work on the first gen tundies. It might have been how I placed my hood back, but the passenger side bracket required about 2 taps in a vice from a hammer to get it bent to not rub on the hood. Otherwise, prime and paint these bad boys to avoid rust, and they work!

    I just upgraded to some Ragos ditch light brackets. I fell like I should run longer bolts for the hood mounts. Stock bolts don’t have much grab since the rags bracket are very thick

    Going to grab some - m8x1.25 25mm
