soon to be blinding, umm..... myself

Just placed order with Blitzpro-

4 6LZ bars (lower grille of my Taco and dad's FJ)
2 3LR (stock fog location or aux back-up)
2 5LR (undecided on mount location)

Now to figure out what I'm going to do for switches.

Package came in the mail last night. Lights look great! Kinda thought the 6LZ bars would be taller. May have to reconsider where I put them. The 3LRs look like they'll fit the stock fog location well- just have to figure out how to mount them.

Will get pics tonight and hopefully get them mounted in the next couple days.

I'm also curious if the 5lr's would fit in the stock fog location. Can you report back on the brightness and pattern compared to the stock fogs? I figure they may make good fogs, even if trimming of the fog insert is required.

the 3LR fits the hole perfectly. the 5LR is taller than the fog light bucket. mounting the 3LR directly to the fog light bucket is out of the question. The bucket is extremely flimsy and fragile. broke 2 tabs on 1 bucket just trying to unclip it.

Post up what switches you end up getting.

Just spent $30 on a replacement for broken fog light bucket. Closest one's gotta come out of California.

As for switches, I'm scouring junkyards for a factory switch. Dont want to pay $60+ for a new one.

Hey, sorry I haven't updated- was working crazy hours, then got laid off and was busy job hunting. Most recently I've been lazy and unmotivated-especially after the truck was hit in work parking lot. Still trying to figure out what to do about those repairs.

Anyway, I picked up a very slightly (almost unnoticeable) scuffed MGM bumper cover and endcap from CL for $20. I cut up the endcap to make mounting platforms for the 3LRs in stock fog location. Plastic welded them in place. Currently working on heating/molding the bumper to mount the 5LRs flush in the lower grille opening. I need to pull the valance and reshape it to get the lights centered vertically. I've been considering having a friend make me an extended skid plate that'll wrap around the lower bumper in place of the valance. When done, whichever route I go, it'll get colormatched.

I'll try and find some pics and get them up.

Sorry to hear about the bad news, job loss and truck damage, but thanks for taking a minute to update us. I appreciate it and will be looking forward to the pics when you get time.
