Now for the nerve racking part. I could not get the camera behind the bumper areas well enough to show what I did back there. It was too tight. Basically, I ran the wiring with the stock wiring over the spare tire, just like Ford did with the other light wiring all the way to the bumper. On drilling a hole in the bumper cap plastic...I looked/ felt behind the bumper first to check for any surprise metal/ obstructions. I found that there is a c-shaped gap back there where the metal ends and the plastic overlaps. Just enough room to put a nice little hole. If you mess up though, it is another bumper cap (costs 200 or so?) plus a pain putting it on. I used a 2" hole saw even though my lights were 2 1/8" diameter so I could Dremel it out perfect and tight. The metal strap was for reinforcement of the bullet shaped light to be bolted on. I shaped it by hand to go around bumper/ frame metal properly. I put a bolt through the top of the bumper behind the back ridge where no one would notice. I think it was a 1/4" bolt with a washer and nut to tighten down the top of the brace under the bumper. Below the hole on the bumper, there is a plastic body nut/snap that just hold the plastic and metal together on the bottom of the bumper. I cut that out with side cutters and replaced it with another bolt, washer, and nut to be able to add the bottom portion of the brace also. Once the brace is bolted and stabilized, on top and bottom, fit the whole light through the hole and bolt to the strap. Push the light in even to get it flush! You don't want to light up the treeline only! Ground the lights anywhere possible and test.
