Looking for Light Mounting brackets for aluminess bumper

Im looking for some Ideas on brackets to hang my 8in Warn lights from the top rail of the aluminess bumper.

Being a Chevy I dont have the room on the side of the winch box.

I have seen some cool mounting brackets before I just dont know where they came from.

Ron, I thought Aluminess has something but could be wrong. I know VisionX has some killer mounts for tubes.

Before I swapped them out for an LED bar, my grill guard lights were clamped on with Unistrut conduit clamps. They also have a heavier duty Sprinkler pipe clamp.

I just drilled holes into the winch door seems to work great and the nuts are locked inside the winch box so not to EZ to seal the light's

Re: Looking for Light Mounting brackets for aluminess bumper

Yeah, I'm doing a custom paintjob on my van and I was surprised how terrible most of the options were. I finally settled on a modified version of this random work van I saw. I think it's clean but nice.

Here's the work van.


I like the flowing water like lines over the rockers, and how it carries the theme up the rear.



I'm going to carry that rear up to the top of my high top though. Additionally, you can see how the logo over the "Harp" kind of looks like a kite surfing kite. I'm going to modify that and make it a kite, and have a kite surfer launching off that rear wave of the rear paint. I think it should look nice.

I also like that they painted the windows white. I've got a club wagon and I'd rather not have everyone looking in and seeing expensive kite gear. Tint works to an extent, but plastidip removable paint will work better. Hoping it'll help being white to reflect more sun than tint. She'll be spending most of her days sitting in the Sun at hot beaches.

Last one from the front.
