Front Light bar

I have seen several pictures where people are mounting what seems to be 7'' - 9'' LED light bar between the front bumper on 2014-2016 models. What size light do I need for this to fit and can someone who has done this post some detailed pics of how you mounted it? Thanks!

This is what I did on my 2015 rancher but I think it will work for all the newer models. I used an 8 inch Mictuning spot flood combo led light bar that I found on amazon. It is super bright for such a little bar and as of now I am happy with it. I just dont know how long it will hold up long term as I just got it installed.

It came with brackets bent into a 90 degree angle to mount on a flat surface. I took these brackets and bent then in so I could mount one end to the existing bolt holding the front rack on and the other to the light. It took a little while to get the angles right and I had to shorten the bracket a little but I am pleased with the results.

Since it is such a little light, I wired it directly into the existing headlights and have it set up so it comes on with the high beams.

I did a two row on the wife's rig. Really like it. I have HID's on my Foremans so don't really need the lightbars, but I went ahead and wired some cheap single row 18W bars into the high beam wires.

I have a 2015. I put 9" in the middle.(fit perfect) used the mount it came with and drilled and bolted through the plastic below the grill. Used 2 zip ties from the sides of the light to the brush guard to make it more stable. I have 7" lights mounted to the brush guard. Just drilled a hole through the bar and bolted on. And added a killer zombie lights toggle switch haha

Thanks for the ideas! I ordered a 9'' light bar and made some aluminum brackets for it to mount between the front grill. I will post pics soon!
