    No tow hooks allows for a longer light bar.
    Yep, 42" curved. Fit like a dream. I had a custom bracket made from aluminum that mounted to the holes that others are referencing but I did not have to do that, there are plenty of makeshift brackets you can find at your local hardware store. Before mounting the light bar in there, I had a push bar that had a 20" mounted to the top of it. The look of the 42".... way better!

    I went through every post of this thread before I did mine... it absolutely helped. OP, I suggest if you plan to do this mod, at least skim through the posts if not read all.

    Heres what Im doing for mine. My 2016 doesnt have the open bumper all the way accross, just two open spots for tow hooks. I have a front hitch so I dont need the tow hooks, so this will be a good way to utilize that space.

    Haha, found ya here too! Hope ya dont mind, sharing your awesome idea. I just got the light bars in this week and the wiring kit. Keep forgetting to go get some angle iron. But its too cold here to do anything, im a whimp lol. Ill probably put this off until spring and do it the same time as my bilsteins.

    40" on my 2016. It looks more narrow, but the light bars fit no problem.
