Hey guys I'm new here to ortb. Hoping someone on here has done what I'm trying to do or would have some ideas. I have a curved led light bar approximately 32 inches long. I'm wanting to mount it on the front bumper grill area. The only way I can see is getting a bull bar first and then mounting it on to there. I was hoping to mount it to existing metal on the trailblazer. If anyone has other ideas or has any success doing this previously please let me know! Any and all help would be appreciated.

There's always the hood...

Could try and mount it to the grill, but it wouldn't be very secure. Or if you're not adverse to drilling through your bumper cover, there's always that option.

I went with a 20 behind the grill.

You could always make a bracket that mounts to the bolts that holds the bumper cover on. These are under the grill.

Reviving an old post here; how did this work out? I am looking to do the exact same thing with a 20inch bar. IS the light output decent?
