    Hey guys, I have four, Round PIAA off road lights with some hardware then was previously attached to a pushbar on my 98 Rover but is no longer in my possession but i did manage to save the lights, So now im wondering where i could mount them on my Tacoma? I dont have a pushbar and probably wont be able to budget one anytime soon. So for now i just want to mount up the four somehow... Even if its two for now. Heres what they look like.

    You could probably put two behind the grill.

    Yah i was thinking i could do that, Not sure how much work it would be... Kinda had this weird idea to mount two in the grill and maybe two in the bottom valance... Probably wouldnt look right though...

    Nfab light bar or smitty bilt light bar. They're just over $100 shipped on amazon and would allow you to put all 4 lights in about the same location as your picture. Not nearly as expensive as a push bar, maybe within your budget? :notsure:

    Can anyone recommend a good light bar Easy install and good quality? I don't mind spending 150-200 bucks. I just want to be able to have my four lights up front :) in the future il probably end up selling it and buying a Satoshi grill and putting two behind the grill :)

    Well i went to amazon and found a couple different models of both, I was just wondering if anyone had any first hand experience with an exact model and maybe help me understand how its installed? I'm guessing a couple bolts to the Valance?

    It bolts to the frame behind the valance. The attachment pieces go through the lower grille. If you search Nfab, you will find a ton of members with this light bar. They are pretty popular and I have yet to year anything negative about them.
