    Hey guys

    so for christmas I am getting a new grill with the toyota block writing and some off road lights behind them.

    Can you guys give me some tips and such on what exactly I'll need


    I'm thinking of going with hella 500's and possible HID conversions

    and then doing a mesh grill ( is there anywhere I can buy a grill that's all set for me to just put in ) or do i have to do it as the grill insert modded into what i've got?

    and what mount do I need to mount my lights behind my grill?


    Thanks guys

    Right on Jack,
    Hope to see your set up some time in a meet & greet or a trail run.
    The two popular types of grilles are Grillcraft and the Satoshi grill. Both require mods to your existing grille unless you get something different altogether. Can't help you with the lights although another member on here has some black magic hellas which blend in well in the background. Good Luck.

    I took some members advice on my son's 07 DC with a Westin Bull bar. Wired the lights into the High Beam circuit. His driving lights come on when he turns on the High Beams. I did not use the switch that came with his KC lights. If his Hi Beams are on the driving lights are on. He likes it and I think it works out well. The PINK wire off the left headlight is the Hi Beam wire. Use it to control the relay.
