    Did you buy the Cali raised brackets then the 32” aux beam bar from Amazon? Thinking about doing the same. It’ll save $100+ bucks. Is that all you needed? Happy with output?

    The cali raised bumper light can see forever. It's ridiculous.
    You get what you pay for.

    Aux beam light bars have just as good of reviews. It’s a matter of Cree vs OSRAM.

    Yep. 32" auxbeam, cali raised brackets, and if you want, a custom push button switch from Amazon. Mine is made by CH4X4. My auxbeam came with a wiring harness but I feel like Ive seen reviews that some people didnt get one. So you might need a mictuning harness too. Im very pleased so far. Much brighter than high beams. Definitely happy I did it haha

    If you need any tips, I watched the install video on youtube by a young fella named Jesse Rizo. His video was very helpful. However, I followed their wiring advice and my dash light was always on, even when I shut the truck off. So I ended up switching the two wires and it works perfect now. Let me know if you need more detailed advice haha

    I am five weeks in to my 2019 - TRD S ACLB. 5400 miles on it already. Trying to control the mod bug a bit. Changing headlights (low and highbeam) to the PIAA LED, swapping out the fog lights for the Rigid Industries MIL-D series driving lights (6192 lumens), LED lights for map and overhead. Tires and wheels changed - 17” KMC XD122 Enduro wheels with BFG AT KO2s.

    Next on the hit list are a bed mat, snugtop shell, blackout badges, remove TRD decals, looking to add a locking gun case (torn between mounted to bed or under rear seats), replace grill once I figure out which on I want, replace front and rear bumpers.

    All of that is a nice start. Maybe soon fter all of that you decide to get serious. :rofl:
    Sounds like your taco is coming along just fine. Enjoy it to the max.

    I was serious with my gen 2 taco and my Defender 90. Now I have a son starting Veterinarian School at UC Davis and a daughter who starts college in the fall. There goes a fair amount of mod money

    Like everyone else said, RIP wallet. I put a limit for myself how much I can spend for the year. I already went over my budget 5 times and made up bullshit excuses to my self for buying the mods. I have a freaking shovel and an axe in my truck and I live in Chicago!! Help me.... lol jk, its awesome. Community is great. Lots of peopling fabing up cool stuff and the aftermarket is endless. Take your time. Enjoy the truck. I sit and stare at it all the time because I think its one sexy ass looking vehicle. I want to take the truck on adventures and keep it for a long long time, so the money Im putting in it is to make me happy when I drive it and enjoy it even more. Anyways, great choice of color and beautiful truck. Enjoy and congrats.

    I wanted another shell top but I believe the tops look so much better on a tuck lifted more than 3”. So being I’m only going with a icon stage 3 bacflip will have to do

    Completely agree. I have a shell. But only because i'm lifted almost 4.
