I am installing some custom projector lights for auxiliary lighting in my Taco, and trying to decide where to put them. One thought is to make some cutouts and mount them in the grille. The other thought is to replace the factory fog lights.
If I mount them in the grille, it will probably take a little more bracket work than down below. It will obviously take some fabrication and cutting, which I'm a little worried that it may not "stick" (I don't know how long epoxy and stuff would hold together out in the open, or if I can find suitable plastic to match). It would be cheaper to replace a grille (or buy one to try out) than a new bumper cover. The lights may also be a little more effective in normal conditions being up higher, but will of course need more downward aim to use in traffic.
I am not completely sure yet, but mounting in the bumper may require cutting out part of the fog light area. That makes me a little nervous because the bumper cover is kind of an expensive part. It is maybe possible that they can fit without, but I don't think so. I haven't looked in a while to see. They can't fit in the fog light area in front of the fog light mounts.
I do like the idea of them in the fog light area, as I think they would be more useful in bad weather. They would also not "stick out", and look more OEM.
What do you think?
