I used the brackets my Aurora light came with, and just drilled a couple holes through the OEM grill brackets. Easy as can be!

Finally installed the Snevey's Off Road 30" 3w cree, spot pattern Pro Series. This addition to the 17" 10w cree, spot pattern made a extremely bright country road, with both bars in spot pattern they still light the trees up.
Both of these lights where bought through U.S. small businesses and the lights where made in China, these companies give a lifetime and a two year warranty with there product sold and with fantastic savings.

I will be putting a 30" LED bar, center mounted, behind a black billet grille on my 2013 FX4 sometime in the next month. I'll post pics ASAP.

Here is the 6" L bracket cut and then welded the cut piece back on to have the bar 1 1/2" closer to the grille and to get it off the external trans. cooler.
Just in case you need a bracket idea.

This turned great! A 30" in the top section would look awesome.

Well here's my install of my LED bar. I took a few (crappy phone) pics and detailed the install for anyone who's never done it and is curious as to how to do it.

First things first, I have the MicTuning 30" spot/flood combo LED bar and a Tuff LED wiring harness.

The bar fits perfectly behind the two vertical bars behind your grille. I chose to mount it in the middle, so I drilled 2 holes. With a spacer ring on each side the fit was perfect.

Next I popped off the side of the dash and was able to feel for the clips and release the dash panel where I wanted to mount the switch.

Then I measured and marked out where I wanted to mount the switch and using a dremmel cut it out. Cut inside the lines and then you can slowly trim it up with a grinding tool till the switch fits.
