2020 Auxiliary lights behind grill

I've just searched for 39 minutes and haven't found anything that helps - but has anyone added auxiliary lights behind their front grill on each side of the TSS? It looks large enough to add some auxiliary lights.

Loving my 2020 ORP and upgrading the fog lights to amber Baja designs next, but if I have the front end open, looking at grill lights, too.

I've seen people add lights there. Here is an example-->

(not a 2020 though, Mocha MA44 light pods. Would recommend something else though like an SS3).

Have also seen folks add DD SS3 behind the top grill. Output looks good.

I like that one, thanks for sharing.

I added a transmission cooler in the middle behind the TSS, and some tubing that I have to tend with, so I was thinking like you, something slightly smaller like the Baja Designs LP9, 6 or 4, or the DD SS3. I have seen some brackets for a light bar for pre-2020, but not sure how it would connect. It's one of those issues where I don't want to have to order a custom bracket when I have the front taken apart, as I don't have tooling to fabricate a bracket.

Took awhile to find some pics of Tory's SS3 set up. Might night work well if the 2020+ as it has the chrome? part in the upper grill. (Tory if you're reading this, please send your wiring diagram for the switch!)

I thought about the upper grill, but on my 2020 ORP, it's got those dumb chrome logo wings, and it's not ideal. I'm thinking I could add the baja designs cross bar light bracket in there, then find a way to either add a cross bar (instead of an LED light bar) and then install from there. I just think it's not ideal.

NFab has a light mount that goes behind the grille and lets you bolt whatever lights you want to it. I've found a post on another forum (link below) where he used it to mount some lights behind the grille on his 2020. Looks pretty good I think. Looks like there might even be room to put two pair in there...maybe some spots and some wider pattern driving lights or something?

The one @SpeedyKevin posted is awesome. I love the look of the square lights up front behind the grill.

Off topic, I see you're from OR. I live in Beaverton if you ever want to meet up, hit me up.

Feel free to PM.

Doug

Just a FYI, you donít need to remove the grill or any front end pieces to install the Baja fog lights. Only have to remove the inner fender.

Finally added some Baja designs lights, SAE for now. Also added new fogs- will look to maybe cutting grill to get more light output. Or I might get brighter lights... thereís room where they are and moving outward, but time to see how they work for a bit. Thanks for all of the advice folks.

Looks good! I need to figure something out to get lights back there. I have a hidden winch so I have to get creative on some mounting points.

Big thanks! Itís some bent steel stock, holes in it, painted and attached to middle grill / frame support. Super strong, versus trying to come from the outside in. I couldnít find a good mount when I searched.
