Thanks man! The lights I ordered had an adhesive backing on them so for now their just stuck on using the adhesive which seems to be holding up really well. As far as wiring I ran the lights in series. So I just ran a wire from a switch the cab following the driver side fender and ran it all the way around the truck following the frame rail. Then I just tapped into that power wire for each light with wire clips and grounded each pod individually to the truck. Sorry if this is confusing. lol! I can get a pic of the wire clips if you want here is a little diagram of how I wired um.

Finally got my tires mounted to some stock 4runner wheels and got the 4xInnovations rock sliders mounted up. I got a chance to test out the sliders this past weekend and can honestly say they are one of the best mods Ive done yet!

Well a little build thread update. Not much has been done to the taco recently just been wheeling it and doing routine maintenance. I recently lucked out and got a front axle from my cousins 84 yota that so happens to be geared the same as my rear axle (4:10's) and picked up an 84 tcase today from a buddy so it looks like Ill be SASing Goldie in the near future! Not lookin at gettin too crazy with it right away just going with leafs and 33's and eventually maybe 3 link it? So now begins the fun collection of swap parts!

Its going slooowwww lol! We just recently bought my wife a 4 runner and she wanted to mod it right away so we lifted it, bigger tires, and rock sliders. Now that that's done for now I can start building the axle up. It'll probably be a few months before I really start making any progress since I just enlisted in the Air Force. I have been wheeling the taco a lot lately tho! lol

Ive been enjoying the "winter" weather here in the southwest and wheeling a lot lately. Here's a short clip from our last trip out.

Had to get a little pull up at the end but it was a blast of a trail! Also just picked up a free set of bucket seats from a buddy of mine just gotta get um re upholstered and figure out the mounts for um.
