Thank man! unfortunately, the parking lot that I use doesn't have high ceilings and I won't be able to enter with a lift...
Also, I go on highways at least 4 times per week... and I have a heavy foot... so I don't think that the lift will be a good idea...

Custom Bolt On Sliders, the Final Result:


Hi-Lift Test:




Some months later I went to a trip to Estorax River, here in Mexico...















Where we camped:



Finally, after a lot of water, we got some dust:

wow scenery looks badass. the river you drove through makes me wanna jump in there.

BTW take your mud flaps off. if you wheel they cause more harm than good.

Finally got my ARB Bumper!!!







-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-


Then I received my pair of fog lights and a pair of spot lights... What I wanted to do is to keep the cabin as stock as possible, so what I did was to wire the relays of each pair of extra lights to the factory relays for the fog lights and the high beam...

Here are some pics of how they turned out...

Fuses coming directly from the battery...(had to do it this way because I haven't found a nice fuse box here in Mexico)


A little Aluminum Plate for installing the Relays... I painted it black for better looks... Red wires are +, black wires are -, and blue wires are + switched (signal from Fog and Hi Beam)




This is the result! I think they give a more aggressive look!





-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-

When I decided to instal my snorkel do it!! I just grabed all my tools, dremmel, tape, some deep breaths and then I was ready to cut!!

Didn't take any pictures of the process, but if you click here you can get tons of info!

Mine is not functional yet, cause I have to go tomorrow to get the tubing done... but so far, it looks great!! what do you think??

It wasn't that difficult... I read this post many times before doing it...
http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/per...n-ss170hf.html

If you buy it from cruiseroutfitters you will get the Template for the Taco, remember this snorkel is made for the hilux...

If you get it directly from ARB, i will recomend to check its position like at least 10 times before drilling anything... Mine looks good, but the only problem was that i left it like 1 inch higher, i haven't had the time for making the proper connection, i hope that this weekend ill get it done

Good luck with that!!!
