    Yeah I am adding a second set to mine. The ones I have now turn on when I got into reverse. I want the second set on a switch.

    Dude! Great idea! I have a jig saw and even have a metal blade.

    Uh oh....I may end up doing this.

    buy a couple more blades so you always have a new sharp one. Make sure you mask the area VERY well, even use some cardboard in case the saw starts trying to jump and skip. That's why i used a cut-off wheel.

    Measure twice, cut once. Ok.... measure like 16 times and cut once.

    Make sure your lights are square with the bumper, NOT the ground. This sounds easy but was one of the trickier things in my install.

    When you get your holes cut, make sure you paint the exposed metal edges to keep rust from creeping in.

    That is exactly what I did to my 2500 a few years back. Easiest way to do it! The most precise was too!

    I have the same lights, their harness & rocker switches are pretty decent quality as well.
    I used a fizz wheel and finished up with a body saw. I had the bumper and bezels painted body color, and put some dum-dum/butyl tape behind it before I bolted them together.

    I only have 2 lights & that’s bright, 4 has to be like looking at the sun.

    My Rigid's have a small rubber gasket that helped take a up the little bit of curve in the bumper.
