    Looking at the Air Design Ranger at the SEMA Show, I noticed lights in the bumper, I will be getting them as soon as I find out where from. Anyone seen this before and interested as well? I e-mailed Air Design and waiting on an answer, They're from Oceanside which is great because a couple of my family members work there and I visit often. I attached pics so you can see what I am referring too.

    It doesn’t appear to have made it to the final concept. We will have to see what they say.

    Something tells me those holes are there for a reason, maybe airflow for cooling? Until we have a closer look I'd be hesitant to plug them up. That said, I do like the idea.

    I was thinking the same thing. I don't think they would be there for no reason.

    Taking a closer look at them, it would seem that they are plugged on every area except the inside edge, where there's about a 1'' square hole leading to the radiator. I wouldn't be overly concerned about covering that area up unless you're planning on doing Davis Dam towing at 7500lbs.

    Looks like they were moved to the bottom near the skid plate

    I think I saw a video somewhere where a Ford engineer was talking about the Ranger and he mentioned how there were integrated air dams on the bumper to move air around the truck for aerodynamics similar to the new Silverado but less ugly (not the actual phrase used).

    I think that's the idea. They definitely direct toward the outside of the truck. There are also one on each side by the fog lights.

    If that is the case, then they may have had to move the led lights so it wouldn't interfere with something that had a purpose. That would make sense why the final product has them integrated into the lower part of the bumper. The nice thing about leds is how easily you can install them just about anywhere
