I'm told the 40" won't fit so it would be down to the 30". If someone made a bolt on setup for it I probably would give it a go, but it's hard to turn down the dual 40" bolt on kit for $575 from M&R.

Unfortunately, the 30" Rigid SR Series will not fit behind the grille without modifying or removing your grille shutters.

Looks terrific!

But be aware of your state's laws if you are tempted to run those lights on the road/street/highway. In the state of Nevada, for example, you can only have two pair of illuminated white light sources pointing forward. I was advised of that by a patrol sergeant of my acquaintance, and he was reacting to four 5 watt LED marker lights I had in my lower grill. So, I swapped them out for amber ones.

Piling on to what Ruger just posted, itís not just using them sometimes, in some states having them mounted is enough for a citation for an equipment violation.

Iím not lighting up my behind the grill bar LEDs on the road, and in most cases, cops are completely uninterested in equipment violations, unless under certain conditions. Nevertheless, you need to be prepared for it.
