It was on the board a while back but I can't find the thread...
What about mounting them on the front of the push bar? After all you'll never push anything with that "Push Bar".
You could also make a small metal "Z" type mount bottom could be inserted between the push bar and the bumper using the existing bolts. The top part of the "Z" could be used to bolt to the light. Thus you could raise the mount height of the lights enough to clear the useless plastic push bar?
Just a couple thoughts.
82 SubaruHummer--no push bar needed!!!
01 Forester--complete with useless plastic push bar!!!

Thanks for the help, I really like that idea. It might be a few weeks before I get it done but I'll take pictures and post the results.

Should I wire it so they are on a switch of their own or should they be hooked to the lowbeam's like the factory lights?
Should I buy PIAA or Hella?
Thanks for all the help.

If you're set on putting them on the bumper, you can build yourself a bracket just tall enough to mount the lights to, you know.. a small rectangular thing.. so they're higher off the bumper, and over the plastic pushbar
I'd persanally go for the PIAA's, but a friend of mine has Hella's on his jeep, and they're damn bright. As for wiring, all my extra lights (small KC's and crazy german fogs) are wired directly to the battery, with switches of course. This is nice, because you can turn on the lights when you have the car off... just don't drain your batt.
Oh yeah, if you want to go for some serious light, get some lightforces, they're austrialian made.... freaking rediculous... i want some
