mine are positioned directly above the upper shock mount , the length really depends on what light units you are going to use .
as you have to allow for the iva light measurements , ( I ended up cutting mine down as I used 7" headlights), so basically mark the centerline of the chassis, half the overall width (across rear arches) , subtract the iva measurement and that gives you the outside edge of your headlight, then subtract half of your chosen light diameter and that will give you the measurement to the mounting hole.
If you need me to take any measurements I can do that tomorrow , just let me know
remember we are not mad just creatively insane
