Led light bar help

Hey guys. New to the forum!
I'm looking at buying a 12 inch led light bar to mount on the lower bumper from Amazon
I'm trying to decide if I'm going to drill holes of buy the roll bar type clamps anyone have any pictures or suggestions on how to mount it? Thanks. Here's pic of my new 700.
The second picture is not mine. That is an example on how I want to mount my light

I would not go that low with the light the way I drive my pioneer it would get damaged I cross some deep ditches and it would ram into the ground that's what I think. But some people don't off road like I do. I would use clamps if you put it there and if you just road ride it would work great.

if you need a good excuse to buy a winch, you could mount it to the winch mount on top and have the winch in case you need it.

I would mount it higher too, they seem to light better the higher they are. You won't regret buying one, the prices are good on them right now also..

Don't feed the bears no matter what they tell you!

I might try it out on the bumper for now....I primarily use it for open field driving around the farm If I did this which size clamp would I need ? Unsure of diameter

I had a bracket built for me so that I could mount it on the top (using the two bolts on each side of the roll bar). I know you wanted to mount to the bumper but at least this will give you an idea for various mounting locations. Uses all existing hardware, not mounted to the roof. I also believe that the roll bar is 43mm.

My lights set up

I made the tube bar on top to mount my light bar to and then mounted the rigid lights on the lower front. With this combination i can light it up great. i have a individual switch for each set and the single.n i am trying to attach the pics. They are shown in the attachments, but i tried to drag and drop them as shown below, with no luck

I mounted mine with a light mount bracket from KC Hlites (


). I haven't damaged it with it mounted in the front, however it is recessed behind the front bumper.

I mounted mine just in front of the windshield and am really happy with it there. Not that it isnt, but make sure a 12" is big enough for what you want. Bigger bars are still really cheap on amazon. Mine is a spot/flood combo but I wish it had more flood. I may end up adding pillar lights angled outward slightly.
