Thinking of adding some lights down in the front bumper, but can’t decide what setup will look best (3 pod lights, 5 pod lights, light bar). Let’s see pics of what you have

I went with a LightBar, 4 Morimoto big banger whites on the top (2 spot, 2 flood) and 2 Morimoto 2 banger amber fogs down low The Big Bnager have an amber backlight that I tied in with the amber lowers, does help with cutting through the fog and snow.
The white are insanely bright.

This looks great! What lightbar are you using? How was install?
 
This is the one I have

It says for 15-20 but does work on the 21+ trucks. Install is easy, but slightly different from the instructions on the 15-20 trucks. The 5.0 tremor (like I have) need to have some sections cut out of the lower bumper block off, ecoboost trucks are already opened up for the CAC so no trimming should be needed.
 
I went with a Heretic 20" light bar in amber. The standard brackets that came with the light were a very close fit to attach it to the main bumper bolts. I just needed to cut the ends of the brackets off to make them slotted and then had to trim some plastic for it all to work.

How many watts are the big lights? Did you have to use a relay to run them all off of 1 upfitter switch?

The Big Banger pods are 5.5a each, so yes I did use a relay to power the units up. The smaller 2 banger are 2a each and the backlighting is 1a each so I wired those direct to upfitter 2 (15a fuse)

Morimoto does offer wire kits with relays already in place but I made my own so the wire lengths would be correct.
 
Did you buy or make a bracket for that?
Homemade was actually pretty straightforward. All the dimensions needed are in this thread along with a debatable install video.
 
@captain lead foot I am pretty sure that I am going to copy your bracket. I like the look of the 5 lights. Going to go with these

I'm flattered! there was a fellow on here last week somewhere that was thinking of making/selling the bracket if your to lazy to punch some holes in some flat bar.

I saw that. I may go that route. Haven’t looked thru my scrap metal pile yet

Really like that set up. I went to Morimoto site and am in the ballpark that a set up like yours with 4 big bangers is about $2,500?
Is that a modified bumper with a bull bar?

I got my light bar ?answered, thanks!
 
No problem.
watch for sales on the lights, I got all 6 of mine for right at $1850ish during a Black Friday or christmas sale. I also see they’ve gone up in price too since I got mine.
That’s a substantial discount, I’ll keep my eye out for the next major holidays.

I have the 3.5 so you seem to think that bull bar light bracket will be an easy fit with no trimming?
 
I want to do a Randy Ellis bar too. I had one on my old F250, it was nice. I even stuffed it into a chain going across the end of a parking spot in a park lookout and it didn't mind.

Likely Squadron XL pros...

They are nice bars for the price. I had on one on 05 F350 with some old schools Hella HIDs and on my 2012 F250 with some Rigid lights LOL.
Frankly I was shocked how well and easily this bar fit in the 23 Tremor. Bumpers from the 15-20 regular F150 are different from the Tremor, but it fits nicely and is solid.
