Morgan, There is no winch mount in the fugitive's future. The existing bull bars are more like a fragile nudge bar, with crappy mounting options and reduced approach angle. Worse, they use the front tow points for mounting. Not willing to lose those. Most were also designed for the 2000-2001 escape bumper cover and are a lousy fit on the 2005 regarding placement of license plate and bumper openings.Personally I would look for the best halogens available for your factory housing and in the future if you choose to add a winch mount or bull bar then add some brilliant light force fog lamps or equivalent to brighten the night with some flair.
Thanks for the tip, I'll check it out.
ET, Thanks for the tip.Check out Brian Built Fabrication (on Facebook) for some hood hinge LED pod mounting brackets. They are meant for Ford Explorers but i would be surprised if they didn’t also work for multiple other vehicles.
I’d let him jnow what you’re trying to do and I’m sure he’d be thrilled to break into another market segment (if they fit).
