87 J10 -- radiator support fog light buckets

Has anyone tried using the inside light brackets to install fog lamps in these trucks?

They're obviously for some kind of light bucket, and they look to me like the same support used on the older Gladiators. Jeep must have made a bucket or light ring or something that fits these brackets.

Lot of people have mounted aux lites there over the years. As to mounts, you're on your own to fab up brkts to go with your choice of lites.
Depends on whichever grille you have, as to how effective they would be.

Well if I have to fab it up, it won't look so good. I'd like to use OEM if possible.

There are screw holes for something. Jeep must have made a bucket of some sort for these brackets. Do you know?

I'm new to Jeeps and AMC.

Thank you again.

If your talking about the holes that are covered by "pie pans" on the Kaiser era trucks it's unlikely you will find a factory installation. If there were any produced with lights there it wasn't a common option. The M715 used the same header and had some sort of lights mounted in that location.

There are several people who have added lights there.

When I converted to a rhino grill I added headlights to mine using the outside headlight mounting plates off a 1966 Chrysler New Yorker and trim rings off a '68 Newport.

Thanks cranky, yes that's exactly what I'm after.

I don't even know what to call these light retainers. Pie pans, buckets, trim rings, signal lamps, bezels, there are a million names to search under.

Yours looks fantastic. With your description i looked up M715 signal lamps which led me to a discussion of CJs and motorcycle trim rings and other substitutes for whatever was supposed to fit in that space.

My grill will be an obstruction but I don't intend to swap it out. Not sure exactly what to do yet. I'm still collecting ideas. I appreciate your thoughts.

Ok, I get it, the "pie pans" are those stainless steel vents you see on the early Jeeps. I think I also saw turn signals in those brackets in an older style Cherokee Chief, with a delete plate Instead of the signal lamps mounted in the lower valance.

Thanks for the tip. Like I said, I'm pretty new to Jeeps.
