Light bar

For you guys that want to install aftermarket driving lights and looking for something less bulky and economical check out stillen.com. They offer a light bar that installs through the lower bumper grill and brackets to bumper mounts. They actually show a photo of a Tacoma w/ light bar and lights. The install was very easy. Purchased Piaa 525 series lights. They look and work great. They were on a "hot buy" at cardomain.com. Everyother web-site 350.00, cardomain 195.00! Thought this might interest someone out there in TacomaLand!

Light Bar

That's it! If you put in tacoma specs the Tacoma picture w/ light bar comes up. Actually I was talking about PIAA pricing(194.00). As you see the light bar is 123.00, unless you found one cheaper. Anyway the quality is very good, heavy brackets and 4 eyelets for multiple driving lights. Simple, clean look. It works for me! I was looking at a bull bar but I would have had to take off my aluminum skid-plate.

Map06TRD,

That is a sweet setup. Can you take some more pics from the front, etc?

I would truly appreciate it.

Light bar

Map06TRD,

My brackets face forward. There are 4 mounting brackets. The light bar is longer than yours. I actually didn't like the lights so far forward so I bought the PIAA round mounting clamps and reversed them on the light bar. Brought them in closer to the truck

Light Bar

Stillen sells mounting collars that fit over pipe. I had ordered them originally because I didn't know that the bar came w/ fitted brackets. I didn't like the way the lights protuded forward so I put the collars on w/ mounting hole on the backside. They now are tucked inside but still plenty of room from bumper/grille. The collars are 33.00 for the set of 2. What a deal!!!!
