    Got mine in over the weekend. Sorry for the poor quality picture - just a quick shot with my parking lights on. Easy to do and a very fun DIY

    Unfortunately on the '12+ tacos, the grill design doesnt allow for three lights (with the middle in the center of the grill). It's either 2 or 4. :)

    My dad thought that the lights I fabricated up would look good on his f150, so now I gotta make him some

    About as much "daylight" as I'll get this time of year in Renton. 11:30 AM, but overcast and light raing.....

    If I wasn't lazy and grabbed my Nikon D3, they would probably look better than the iPhone 5S pictures above. In the last picture, it looks like the lights are almost white. But to the naked eye, they are still amber and quite visible and distinct. I'm across the street in this photo (26-28 feet wide).

    Here is a link to the last image at full size: http://i1092.photobucket.com/albums...FE-8B11-0283ED3FB20D_zpsoh871vwr.jpg~original

    Love the look, I think I am going to do this to my truck as well. Off topic, but what kind of lights are your headlights?
