I've got them mounted Pendant style on my 5KTQ and they work great.... In 
fact I don't even use my high beams anymore and they don't blind 
oncomming drivers.

Try removing the lower grill and tucking the back of the lights in there, 
but if your running into shrubs and parking stones it's not going to 
re-aim the "vicinity of Mars/Jupiter" it's going to break the $35 lenses. 
 So I guess the moral of this story is "don't run into them!"
