    Can I drill into my bumper cover to the bumper

    I want to mount a curved led light bar on my 2015 Explorer bumper. Can I drill thru the bumper cover into the bumper to mount it with a lag bolt? I realize there is a little play between the cover and the bumper but I can use a small spacer to ensure the cover does not crush a bit. Thanks

    well I finished my little project with help of some examples here. I installed the drivebright DRL but did not like the black side of it against my standard silver grill so I plasti coated it, leaving the chrome strips intact and placed a black and chrome Ford logo in place of the blue stock one.. I also put in a 22" LED light bar on the bottom of the bumper. I had purchased a bull bar 2 years ago but could not bring myself to mount it, did not like the look for my truck. If I had done the LED lbar on the top of the bumper behind the grill I would have lost some of the output due to the narrow opening (I could have used a single row but had this in stock and it puts out more light). First picture, before is a stock off of the internet as I never think to take pics before or during.

    Hey all! I have a 2017 Ford Explorer Sport. So far I've put in a 3" lift, reflex shocks, 18" steel rims, and threw some nitto ridge grapplers on it. She handles great on the trails but I want to add some more cosmetic parts for lighting and styling. The first thing is the T-Rex that I included below. Does anyone have any insight into build quality if this? I also amd going to get some brackets to mount lights to the hood. The brackets slip right into the piece that holds the hood up so I do t have to drill anything.

    T-Rex 6316641 Torch Series Black Main Grille w/LED Light Bar for 16-18 Explorer
