Rough Country busted out a nudge bar for the OEM standard Bronco front bumper. Pics on their website looked really good, so I dropped the cash and ordered it.

You can order it with Rough Country pod lights or a light bar, but I ordered my own pod lights. They are Nilights off of Amazon. Super cheap and I have had really good luck with them. I do open them up and seal them with silicone though. If you're willing to do a little extra work, Nilights last a long time. The fog lights I installed in the bumper are also Nilights.

I do have the auxiliary switches, so wiring is super simple. The switches already have a relay and fuse, so pick your switch and wire it up to the right color wire in the harness under the hood. Easy peasy.

I think it looks great! Install for the nudge bar says 2 hours to button it up, but it took maybe 1 hour. Installing and wiring up the lights took longer than installing the nudge bar. The whole set up cost me $300.

Sweet I just ordered on the other day, I am going to do my own lights as well. You have a link for the lights? What about you bumper lights, go any information on them. That nudge bar looks awesome, glad to see it on someone elses rig.

Love the look! I have one on the way as well!

Do you have the factory aux switched for your lights or did you add an aftermarket switch?

I have the factory aux switches. If you ordered them too, that was smart. Switch 3 thru 6 are 10 amp switches. The 4 pod lights on the bumper only pull 6 amps all together. I put them on switch 4. The fog lights pull 4 amps total, so I put them on switch 3. Super easy with the pre wiring done at the factory.

I took a screen shot of what lights I bought off of Amazon. The Nilights in the bumper are flush mount. The piece of plastic on the bumper that I installed them on actually pops off the bumper. Made it really easy to cut the shape out (the lights come with a template to get a perfect fit) and bolt the light to them. I did have to trim a little of the bumper behind it to get them to fit and pop back on.

I also opened those lights up and sealed them with silicone. Take the time and seal them up and they should last. I have had good luck with Nilights after I seal them up on multiple vehicles.

Thanks, I got the mod bumper and it doesn't have the insert. I wonder if I can fab up some instead of buying brackets.

The black-out Bronco Lettering looks good too!

For the nudge bar install, any trimming to get that on or is it an easy bolt on?

Someone on the forum did a really easy mount for the pod lights he used on his mod bumper fog lights. I can't find it in the search though.

Super easy, no trimming and bolts right on. 15 mm socket and a 17 mm socket. Took me maybe 45 minutes. You got this.
LOL, I’m the little train that could.

Reason I ask, I want to be able to remove it if I end up wanting to change things up and not have a hacked up bumper to deal with.

I'll see what I can come up with, thanks.
