Couldn't find any solutions online so made my own brackets, bought maybe 1" by 12" stainless steel piece 1/8" thick and cut into two pieces, bent 90 degrees twice at 45 degree angles (lightly scored inner part of bend with dremmel) and then sanded and painted black. Removed rubber trim piece on pillar that goes from fender to roof, there's a small bolt in there that I removed, bought a longer more sturdy stainless steel one and an extra nut to go underneath, attached my brackets to that bolt and placed ditch lights as far back / out as I could get them pointed maybe 30 degrees from front of vehicle. Lights were cheap $25 flood lights from auto store but have been great, just cant go super big with this mounting option. Trimmed a small slot out of the trim so could put it back on the vehicle and it looks great, Will attach two pics I already have, i'll remove the cover and show the bracket and mounting point when the rain lets up in a bit.I want to put ditch lights on the hood but I don’t want to drill into the hood. Does anyone have any good suggestions on what I can do.
Two reasons, first it is tough to wire them on top of the car without either going through the firewall and removing a ton of trim pieces, or running the wire outside the vehicle which wouldn't look great. It also creates a lot of glare on the hood. Having ditch lights lower down / forwards but angled to the sides allows you to get that visibility to either side without the light having to be on top of your vehicle. Also aerodynamics / mpgs are highly effected by things on top of your car so letting things stay smooth up top is ideal.I’ve never heard of ditch lights before, but why couldn’t you just clamp them onto the roof rails?
