    Here’s how the wiring turned out, soldered it all and sealed it with liquid electric tape and heat shrink tubing where I could. Then threw on some 1/4” corrugated tubing and zip tied it all

    In this photo where did you run the wire through?

    [​IMG]

    I have these clips (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01A6LTK44) soldered to these MicTuning lights and all my wiring is run to the front of the truck to a push switch. I have the female end of the clip on the wiring to the truck and the male end on the lights.

    Did you have to use a drill or 1" hole saw to put a hole where the "3/8" is written or just run it through that left side hole?

    UPDATE


    Just remembered you replied to me on this kinda. So where did you have to drill that hole at?

    Finally did it today!! These things are awesome. Somewhat time consuming to install, but not hard at all. Hardest part was probably getting the bumper caps off.

    Thanks to Chris aka @ToyoTacoTurner for coming over and lending a helping hand. I wired mine to a push switch in the cab so I can flip them on whenever.

    I’m sorry @RobP62 i got caught up and completely forgot to take lost of pics and video. Sorry man....

    Installed Rigids today.
    Added a switch up in the cab to turn them on along with one in the bed.
    They do not come on with the reverse lights which I also switched over to LEDS today along with the Tacoma tailgate decals added finally.

    You know Rob, with you ability to have trouble with all your installs and messing things up lol

    I would not recommend this mod or at least do not do it alone. It’s very tedious and can easily be F*CKED up lol
