Hi Nick,

Lighting sure has changed from the days when I ran quad Hella 2000 on my stage rally car!

I was wondering if DD has plans for a flushmount, square design, similar to the Baja Squadron Pro:

I ask because I would prefer to make two cutouts in my 2013's center grille, to either side of my license plate, to flushmount a pair of driving beams -- rather than having a bar protrude out in front of the vehicle. That's fine for a proper stage rally car, but a daily driver I'd prefer something less likely to get banged or stolen.

After sanding the back of my grill I was able to mount mine (a 20 inch bar) directly to the crash bar there are some holes that are already in the crash bar and make for some pretty good mounting locations. I think the two holes in the bar that I used would also be perfect for you to use two pods, I believe they would put you directly on each side of the license plate. I don't think I lose much light shining through the grill. It makes for a very concealed and subtle set up it also doesn't block any air to the radiator, ford racing intake, or intercooler. Here in Oklahoma we don't need to have front license plates so for me it was the perfect set up. I also have the Diode Dynamics LED fog lights they were a huge improvement over stock and way more socially acceptable than running around with the 20 inch lightbar on!
Yes, we are required in Maine to have a front license plate, but there is that space on either side of the license plate that I could work with. It's about 5" wide on each side, and yes, cutting away a portion of the plastic crush piece (that clips to the crash bar and supports the back of the grille) on either side to fit a light is OK by me. When I was looking at the flush-mount Baja Squadron Pros, they are light enough that I feel like I could mount them on the grille (after cutting out a square to accommodate) and not have any visible vibration of the lamp.

Nice that we are getting more choices.

All the best,

Whiskey Throttle Rally Team putting the new Stage Series light bars to the ultimate test at the 100 Acre Wood Rally!

Where you all seeded up high enough to do the cattle guard jump this year?
