Adding lights to 1st gen front bumper

Would like to add some lights primarily for offroad driving use to the front of my 1st gen tacoma - since relatively inexpensive prerunner type bars are almost impossible to find, i figure i'll just mount them to the top of the bumper in front of the grill - i believe i've seen it done in pics here.

question - anyone recommend any particular lights since i figure they probably have to be somewhat shallow to mount there -

and are there any switches that are toyota factory that will fit in the two unused openings to the right of the two auxillary power outlets below the ashtray?

thanks for any help...

I know what you mean. There's plenty for 2nd gens, but not 1st. That's why I gave up looking. I've found 1 or 2, but they were wicked $$$$.

Are you talking about a prerunner bar thing thats the whole bumper or just one of the light bars that mount to the bumper itself?
