Where would you mount them on the hood?

directly to the hood itself...probly either in the front corners or back corners...((not sure of the legality, but ive seen jeeps with lights at the A-post so must be somewhat legal))

for wranglers they make hinge brackets to mount lights on.
like so


i would think for ours you may be able to rig something up at the hood cowl area or maybe fab a bracket to use on the hinge points themselves

i think this is what your looking for.

for the hood mount lights....i dont see why not.
looks like just angle steel and couple of brackets. i think the bolt to the hing location on the wrangler...i dont see why you couldnt do the same.
i would just add a plate of steel to bottom side of hood for reinforcement.

now the jerry can i looked at the carrier they make for these...looks like you could extend the bolts on the carrier and bolt it on top of tire.
i am not sure of the first gen carrier sizes so i dont know if it would fit to the pass side of the tire or not.

hope this helps
