yea there very stable

they dont even shake much

the bracket goes under the grille and attatches to the top of the inner bumper (there was some metal in there ) i made the bar and all that

pretty simple stuff but it was time consuning, took about 5 hours from start to finsih but im very happy with the way it turned out

i can post a how to if some people want (im a big diy guy on the honda forums )
i never have much money so i construtc alot of things

I just want two driving lamps...i was thinking about attatching them the grill, but am afraid they'd shake and move a lot.

Yeah...I am always looking for a brushguard or safari bar for my Outback that I can attatch some lights to.

I'd really like to put some lights on the front bar of my roof rack.

makes a big difference , ive had lots of cheap fog lights in my life and all they ever did was put out some much glare they were useless in a snow storm , i can tell already these a good quality since i tune them all on and visiosn improves lol

the driving light a wish were a bit of a wider beam but that why i went with te fogs for up close

the poor headlights dont even look like there on :brow:

I have FF1000 lights on the front of my Legacy. They do vibrate a little, but it doesn't bother me. The bar they are mounted on is bent up, and over, and attached to the radiator mount.

those look nise , i wanted the 1000 but didnt have the money for 4 of them .

my bracket is very simalair but i kept the bar going into the grille as short as possible to minimize shaking . mine is only about 4 inches long

ill get some more pics today
