Mount small light bar in place of winch?

So I don't really have much use for a winch on my mall crawler... BUT!!! I could definitely use more lights.

So i was thinking i could mount an a small light bar through the fairlead opening on my bumper where a winch would normally feed through. Has anyone else done this or seen pictures?

This is an interesting idea. The closest thing I've seen are the light brackets that mount between the fairlead and bumper/winch that allow mounting of lights or a light bar above the fairlead.

If you're handy at all, you could fab up a bracket to mount behind the bumper (with the existing fairlead holes).

You wouldn't need to fab up anything, if you just want to mount it through the fairlead opening. Get a light bar that is just slightly bigger than the opening and drill 2 holes through the bumper and you can mount the light bar that way.

Check out the Poison Spyder Hawse Fairlead lightbar mount if you are planning to install a 10" LED bar in the fairlead.
