@mbumpus11 - great write up thank you!

@ElectroBoy - I was thinking about the same sort of mod (for scene lighting in the back when I am dispersed camping and I noticed that @Phil Frames had done a similar thing but at a lower point in the bumper. Note he says that bumper removal isn't required, if that's a concern.

I can't tell what lens he used, but you can get work/scene lenses for the S2 that covers 120 degrees, so you'd get uniform coverage I suspect.

Also, an alternate route you can use for the wire is inside the frame rail. There are holes near the engine and in the back so you just need some fish tape/sticks. I've talked to a few people that went that route. Not sure it's necessary - what the OP used is pretty solid (the BD extensions already come sheathed so he effectively doubled up) - but another option.

The lights sure are bright.
A few of questions:

1. My biggest apprehension is bumper removal. Do you have instructions for how to do this?

2. You ran the wires externally. Did you consider a way to route wires through the cabin and out to the bumper?

3. Connecting the wires to the lights. Did you make the connections first then install the bumper, leaving some slack? Then tie wrap the excess wire?

4. Is there slack, or an inline connector, so you can remove the bumper in the future without breaking the wires to the lights?

Yep - I used the work/scene lens for that wide throw of light...these are meant for near field vision while reversing, and/or when behind the truck using it for trailers/night camping setup light/worklight at the ranch/etc.

Do you have examples of the wiring through the frame rail?? I had thought about that, but didn't really explore very far due to thinking I was losing my mind and getting "too creative," haha.
