    I am taking a metals fab class and for my project I decied to build a lightbar/sportrack for my tacoma. To personalize it I used a cnc plasma torche and cut TRD into two side plates for it. The results are bellow.

    The lght bar looks really nice, but not sure if it looks right on a DC. IMHO the length of the roof of the DC makes it look odd. I think it would look much better on a 2 door, or maybe a access cab.
