    What are some of y'alls opinions on color as far as LED hide-a-way in the front corners? Red, White, or both? I'm leaning toward Red/Red in the rear back up lenes. Just undecided on the front.

    I had a small multi mount that I put in the coin tray to hold the handset

    Here is the brain box mounted behind the passenger back seat.

    ImageUploadedByTapatalk1341143709.397727.jpg

    I drilled a 1" hole on the lower left corner of the utility box to pull all the wires and run them under the sill plates

    And the siren and light controller is pc programmable.

    I mounted the main unit behind the back drivers side seat in the capartment 2012-07-01 11.23.16.jpg

    i then mounted the controller in the garage door opener compartment i had to do a little trim work to the door to get it to fit but when it is in there the button on the outside can work the air horn or the 3 button function.

    Does anyone have pictures of lights being put into a hood scoop on the Tacoma's? If so what leds did you use and how bad was the install. I know this is a previously discussed topic but my ability to view the videos from Afganistan are limited and I believe that is all that had been posted.

    The LP lights are axxitech XL6. I made a bracket for behind the plate to hold lights. Both the front and rear are for sale if interested just send me a PM.

    As far as the high mount. I took out 2 of the 3 lights and replaced with LED HAW from Strobes and more. However I will be replacing and upgrading them to the Feniex Cannon shortly. The Cannon has a dual function so it will function as a brake light and then also as an emergency/warning light. We sell them also through our store front as well.

    The LP Lights are on the store also.

    Thanks for lookin.

    I was just in the process of doing this exact setup for my switches, except different labels. My 6 switches will be:
    Front LEDs
    Rear LEDs (up-flash / down-directional)
    Directional control (up-left / down-right)
    Wig-Wags
    Left alley
    Right Alley

    Or I may change the last 2. Instead of separate alleys, I'll combine into 1 switch does both alleys and my last free switch will be strobes if I add them.

    Then my 2 switch blanks on the left of the steering wheel will be rear back up lights and front led bar for off road use.

    Here is my current lighting setup. I will be changing the front LEDs though. Instead of amber/white they will be amber/green.

    FRONT:

    I guess my old dash king isn't cutting it these days?!
    Always wanted to do the grill lights just never wired up extras on the truck yet and didn't want to fry anything. I'll add that to ever growing list of extras I need/want!
