Question How to mount 41" light bar in ecoboost grill

I have seen mounts in non ecoboost with 41" bars that are mounted low inside the grill and that is what I want but the ecoboost has the turbo cooler in that spot or at least that is what I think is right there. Here are some pics to help better explain myself with one showing the extra piece in the Eco and the other showing where I would like the light to be mounted behind to shine there. Any input would be great and the light bar I have is one that has the 5 mounting screws coming out of the back not the side. Thanks guys

There you can see how I made the 40" rigid light bar work with the ecoboost intercooler.

I had to modify the mtg brackets that came with the light bar by making them narrower both on the bottom (where it mounts to the rubber grill bumpers) and along the curved part.

Hopefully this helps you guys
