So I got out the tools last night and here is what I have now. I cut off the stock bracket just below the reflector, removed the standard plate light and mounted a backing plate to the flat spot. Wired it up and done. I used a Custom Dynamics low profile LED frame (it has a lifetime warranty) and I have to say, I like the way it came out.

Not good, you obstruct the nice shape view of the fender curve from the rear standpoint.
