I have easily mounted two Diode Dynamic lights using the AEV openings on either side of the winch mount area. Only Diode Dynamics or Rigid mount brackets will work. The Baja Designs brackets only have one centered hole in the bracket. Utilizing the factory supplied mounting holes require off set side to side mounting as well as being high enough to correctly face the light in the opening. I had to remove the front skid plate, which wasn't too difficult. I only had to run wire from the bumper up to the engine bay where my SPod BantamX lighting controller is located. The DD lights have a cool backlight, so you can run the lights as bright fogs, or amber running lights day or night. With the BantamX you have the ability to flash or strobe the lights in any mode.

Looks good! Seems like the tow hooks will block some of the light to the side.


Can these lights run amber and white without that bantam unit? I see some brands that do both, but I think they are knock offs with switches.

Yes they can. Does not need the BantamX. They require two positives and one ground. DD includes a 3 way switch.
