    You could always hook into the second power outlet via fuse tap in the cabin. (My Instagram has a video from yesterday of the start up) and then they run regardless of what settings your lights are on (DEL, fog lights ON/OFF, high beams.)

    I installed mine last weekend, everything fit perfectly. Just an FYI, I was a bit disappointed the TOYOTA letters are not snap on, but comes with double sided tape.

    I also bought the seven Sparta amber grille lights. Two of the lights snapped into place tightly but the other two are loose on the grille, so I had to jerry-rigged to keep it staying on tight.

    I just ordered one similar to this on eBay. I went to order the same one, but they were sold out. The one I ordered appears to have the same letters setup where they are screwed in as one piece, so hopefully no crazy T&A :D

    Yep it says somewhere in the ad that the letters come with. I've heard that they ship separate to get around the faux issue. From what I've seen the ones with the center section not installed have better letters so I went with this one. $62 shipped with 15% off is damn good

    It's certainly easier here to find a wealth of information about our trucks

    i guess the reason for a non-continuous line top and bottom is because of where the letters are attached?.....that in my opinion looks horrible.....i'm not saying that to hurt your feelings, but if you look at all the other posts about this after market grill, you will not see it.....that may be the difference in price.....again not trying to rain on you, but check the others

    Letters mount from the back side, I just have them laying on the top in this picture. The grill looks pretty good to me. Trust me, you aren't going to hurt my feelings at all.
