I guess I didn't try hard enough. I will try spinning the bracket around. Nice setup Crooks,

Does anyone know if Rigid makes a “shorter” mounting bracket? When mounted the bumper is covering a small section of the bottom of the fog.
I used the N-Fab brackets for my Rigid radiance cubes. Plenty of adjustability. I'm happy with them because the spacing is very close to perfect but regardless of which way I put them on one corner of the first or the last cube ended up being a little behind the bumper. This is best I could do.

I was also trying to find a shorter bracket for my lights and came across these.

Remove the U-bracket, flip it 180* and reinstall. You’ll then be able to use the curved channel to dial in the height perfectly. Hope this helps!

I wish I could find the post on how to make the bracket from some L channel.

Flip the bracket and make them as short as you need.. but rigid does make a bracket that will allow you to flip the lights so the logo is correct

Here's the one I like. They also have a 3 light version. A little pricey, but I like the way it fits.

Just curious why you chose the DSS for that location? I wouldn't think the side shooters are going to get much light out the sides given they are behind the bumper. I would think the D-XL (with twice as many lumens, all forward facing) would be a good fit for that location (assuming they fit).

I have DSS on my A-pillars and I'm a huge fan of the near field coverage.

Disregard. I just read further and saw your pics. I see what you're doing now.
