Well my three 6" Eagle Eye Spot lights arrived last week, and I'm now trying to draw up some plans to mount them on the front bumper over the winch. I figure I'll make up (or have something fab'd) that will come up from the warn bumper on an angle from around the base of the headlights to about 3" above the winch. This means my driving lights will stick up above the hood by ~2.5-4 inches. Ideally this mount will be closer to the hood/grill so that when I eventually get a brush guard (or something of that nature), I have room so there's somewhat of a gap between the guard and my lights.
So my question is this... should I plan on making/getting something that can be easily removed (ie a few bolts on the arms (removing the arms from the base - which is attached to the bumper)? I'm concerned that if it's too close to the grill, I won't be able to get that out if needed.
How often have you had to remove your grill? Why would you remove your grill?
Once last spring to install a grill insert and will again soon to upgrade the headlights that have always sucked. As for normal maintenance, I guess that would only leave occasional light bulb changes.

Yeah... went and talked to my welder buddy who's going to help... The base will be on and not too easily removable. The arms and top however will be able to come right off with a couple bolts. I'll just need to have some sort of disconnect plug setup for the wiring for the lights - but that's not a major issue.
