Question about Rhino Grill on '87

Got a Rhino Grill for my '87 Waggy and have seen all the threads that I could find. While I've seen info about relocating the tranny cooler, I've never seen mention of the air conditioning hoses that go through the passenger side pie plate hole. Has anyone run into this problem?

Additionally, what are the lights that people are using in the pie plate holes?

It's all fun and games until someone breaks a woodie.

well you probably have to reroute the hose... which requires draining the freon

Eagle Eye Lights

I have some Eagle Eye lights with the black covers installed by the PO in the pie plate area and wired to the existing fog lamp switches in my 87GW.
Those plus the PIAA he put in light up the sky when someone cuts me off in SoCal.

There should not be AC hoses going through either pie plate hole, or any hoses at all. A PO or PO mechanic must have done that. This is an 88.

yes detours did mine for me

My Freon lines did run through there.
Just to be clear though mine is an 80's
I think detours is defunked now.
