    Will four seven inch round light be able to fit on this bracket?

    Got my light in I just wish the bamf mount went a bit higher and and inch or two more forward so it could clear the trans cooler. But overall love bamf's quality

    I used @JLee's BAMF behind the grille bracket with four @Baja Designs XL Sports on my 2017 Tacoma and it worked perfectly. All I had to do from memory was relocate the horns. I just flipped them around. Thanks for coming up with badass parts!

    Unnecessary yes, but I'm happy :D

    Pretty sure you can see me from space at this point. Thanks again for the bracket - worked perfectly!

    Hello all. Just installed bracket on my truck. Used 4 harbor freight lights. Easy install. Still get decent light through stock grill but nothing like pc3coyote gets. Possible grill swap in the future. Check it!

    Where does the 5th washer go?

    1 on each 35mm M6 bolt.
    1 on the 16mm M6 bolt.
    1 with the M6 nut.

    Is it just a spare?

    I'm having issues with mine lining up. The holes line up, but the upper mounts get bend in and seems like they will require spacers and longer bolts.
    I think it came with 30mm M6 bolts when I measured.

    Edit - I guess it's 2 on each side for the upper mounts. Sandwich the brackets. Then just one on the short bolt.

    Even then it's still too far from the upper mounts. Almost need 1/4" - 3/8" spacers.
    Is the middle support supposed to be modified?
    Is there an order to install? I'm either stupid or overthinking this...

    I ended up getting longer bolts and made spacers.

    What's an ETA when these will be back in stock? This would be absolutely perfect for my IR lighting

    Does anyone have pictures of this bar with LED pods behind a 2005-2009 stock grill? So far only picture of a stock grill I saw was from a 2015.
    I really like this idea but want to make sure they are hidden when turned off.

    How much light do those horns put out?

    --- No, seriously -- is there a reason you put (4) separate horns on your truck?

    Is there a step-by-step guide for installing this, anywhere? Don't see one on the BAMF website. Read the first 8-10 pages in this thread, didn't see one.

    If it's already all spelled out for my 2014 2nd gen V6 I'd rather just follow directions.
