    Does this work on all years?

    I have a 98 but am eventually going to put a 95-97 grille/headlights, etc on it.

    I Haven't had the time to check into the older grilles yet. I don't see why it wouldn't clear everything. My Brother has a 98 that I'm going to fit it to I'll let you know.

    View the build. Too much to list.
    None of these behind-the-grille light mounts work with a stock grille, correct? I'm not sure I want to change my grille yet.

    You might be able to mount the light bar but you wont see much light the stock grille blocks a lot.

    Yeah Eric is going to bring his Runner to see what needs to be changed to make it fit I think it's just mounts the clearance should be good. Also I'm working on one for the 4th Gen 4Runner.

    I have the prototype that I used to mock everything up it's cut in 1/8th plate not 3/16th and if anyone wants it it's pictured in the OP. It's yours for $25.00 + shipping

    BUMP I'm going to be getting a few BlitzPro lights to test fit different sizes in the 1st Gen grills. I want to see how many lights we can cram behind these grills.
