option 1 would be the lightest, option 2 might block some airflow to your radiator, option 3 flushmount has been done before so you know it can work. would you need to keep the stock lights to be street legal?

Of those choices I like option 1 the best.

Have you considered a mix of option 1 and option 3? I never liked the idea of putting low beams in a flush mount in the stock location because of how much bumper is in the way... But for a high beam the flush mount would be fine. for a low beam I like the grille placement better.

not really but that option will be to much work
the idea is to do something simple and lighter but also with a good looking
