Default Which style light bar will fit best?

About to order a 20" light bar for the bumper cut out for my ecoboost and need to know which style between the two lights will fit or if both will. Here's some pics of what I want and the two different styles thanks!

Option A would require less modifications if its not bigger than 20"

Yes both are 20" I was just unsure if that option would allow enough of an angle with that style mount

The bars don't need much tilt for lifting or lowing them like a head light. The light comes out in a 60 degree angle (most lights) so they flood the ground with bright light the same time as lighting the tree tops. The wider the bars are, more chance you will have to modify the steel of the bumper to fit it in. Mine went right into the old slots for the license plate holder so no drilling, but will move it around a bit to install my stainless mesh to keep the rocks away from the rad. For an EB truck... you might want to remove this before heading to ford for warrantee...

I got a 20" light bar from Toughlight for my 2010 F150 and it doesn't fit inside that space for my truck, i heard that they can only be put in there flush in a raptor because the lights them self are 20" across then you have to add the inches of the housing in both side which ends up exceeding the area you want to put it in.

Quite a few on the forum have 20" bars in the lower opening. Mount them a little further back behind the bumper and trim the bumper padding.

Yea that's exactly what I had to do. It still works extremely well but it does cut off an inch or two of kight from the sides if you have the combo option with the flood lights on the sides.

Got any installed pictures of the lower opening light bar actually installed? Not just the photo shop version.
