Lighting Idea...

Hey everyone,

I'm looking to add some lights to the front of my truck somewhere. I do some trail riding and alot of highway driving so it'd be nice to see what is way up ahead on the road and light up the trails at night.

I have Sylvania Silverstar lo-beams but nothing else.

Here is the front of my truck. I'm thinking about cutting out maybe 4" circles on both sides of the front toyota emblem and mountain them into the stock grille. What do you guys think? I've done a search on what others have done but I havent seen anything like this and think it might look good and accomplish what I want.

the only thing about a first gen grille is there really isnt the necessary room for lights up there. for another idea....check out "tjgraner"'s profile and pics...we installed some rectangle lights on his bumper....did a lil cutting to fit them...and they turned out great.

Hm.

You don't think there is a 4" light out there that would fit without hitting the radiator?

I'm going to measure from the front of the grill to the radiator to see how much room I have. I'll measure from the front of the grill so that the lights would be somewhat flush with the grill.
