Under Bumper/Body Running Lights

Allright, I wanna add some running lights under the front bumper of the Dodge. But, there is nothing under there to mount to. What would I use to put under there to mount these? Does anyone have the ability to bend and form aluminum to fit????? I wanna fun 5 under the front bumper to match the cab lights. The pic shows what I wanna do.............

I also wanna mount some running lights down the side of the truck, under the body. I was thinking of using a aluminum strip riveted to the pinch weld under the cab and mounting them there........but the pinch weld only goes under the cab. How would I mount them under the box? Watcha guys think?

Could you use small pieces of aluminum angle bolted to the bottom edge of the bumper to mount the lights to?

Gonna have some fab work on the bed though........

The other option is to add running boards, and mount the lights to them.

Run an angle between the frame rails to mount to, if the height is not right use a tripod brace to put it where you want.

Good use for an old bed frame.
