    I finally got the second reverse light installed in the bumper. Fwiw, these are tied in to the towing packages reverse wire so it comes on each time, simultaneously w oem bulbs. Very happy with the end results!

    Well, either look up HomerTaco (in the vendor section), or DIY your grill (like i did with a billet), then look up BAMF (Bay Area Metal Fabrication), in the vendor section and get yerself a lightbar like mine. Lot's of how-to around here to get this done. If ya need advice on anything let me know:)

    The KC's on the outside are actually my back-up/asshole lights now, the two in the middle are Baja Designs i got from a member, now the two outboard ones are hella 500's, all re-wired with KC 130w bulbs instead of the 55w's.
