Review & Install Video
Today, I'm bringing you a quick overview and installation of the Rough Country 30-inch single-row LED hidden grille mounting brackets, which are available for all '09 to '14 F-150s, excluding the Raptor model. These mounting brackets are the perfect fit for any truck owner looking to mount some aftermarket LED lightbars to the front of their truck, without it sticking out like a sore thumb. These will very discreetly mount behind the front upper grille, and won't require you to drill into your truck, as they're just a $20 alternative. Now, the install gets a very simple one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter, as they bolt right up to pre-existing holes, which we'll talk more about later on. Rough Country made these a perfect fit for any 30-inch LED lightbar, and they're manufactured from a 3/16" 1018 stainless steel, very durable stuff for a very long-lasting lifetime. Now, the black powder-coated finish on top is also to help it blend in, but it's great for rust and corrosion resistance as well. They're also backed by Rough Country's Replacement Warranty to make sure you get on a new set if there's any defects in the craftsmanship. Arguably, one of the best parts about this is the $20 price tag. Some of the other options out there will be a ton more expensive for a mounting solution that typically requires you to put them in an out-of-place location, something obnoxious, or even to drill on your frontend or your roof. This satisfies both of those, doesn't require any drilling, and is very discreet behind your upper grille. Because it doesn't require any drilling, the install definitely gets one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter. As far as hand tools, a ratchet and socket set will absolutely do the trick, and I'd say about 30 minutes in the garage or driveway at home is enough to get this job done. So you'll actually just be mounting these brackets to the hood-stop mount holes located under your hood. So once you pop that open and you removed each bolt for each side, you'll just pop in these brackets and replace the bolt into the factory location. Now, I'll say it takes about 30 minutes or so, because you're probably going to be installing the LED lightbar at the same time, in which case you'd have to mount that bar up your personal way and, of course, do some wiring on the side, which is all up to you or the directions from that manufacturer. So keep in mind, one out of three wrenches for the brackets, 30 minutes or so from start to finish, including the LED lightbar.
