    I have a 07 double cab 4x4trd and have installed a ARB front bumper. The bumper has no spot for the factory lights but would like to install 200watts of KC lights. Does any one know if the switch and the wiring from the factory lights be enough to cary the load or will there be a melt down of wiring?

    I don't have a clue about an 07', but Before I had my 00', I started off with a '94 toyota pickup. I ran two baja racing lights on a roll bar, and two on my brush gaurd, and dad and I did the wiring. We ended up having to use 20 amp fuzes for each, because everything else blew. We did seperate wiring to aftermarket switches as well. I wouldn't imagine it a good idea to run two extras off your stock switch. But that's an older truck, and everything may be stronger now. Not for sure. I haven't really had a chance to tear into my new one.
