    lol, I know its going to happen, you should see the dents in the X. Good thing I traded it in at night. They couldn't see them well. I felt the same way when I traded my jeep in on the xterra. didn't want to scratch it until the first few parking lot dents.

    I have the BAMF behind the grill light bar bracket and mounted the Blitzpros upside down. I'll take pics later today for you. Since you mounted yours on the outside of your grill I'd suggest security nuts.

    top portion... you'll see the "BDF" which is the previous company that sold BAMF the rights to the bracket

    this is a crappy pic but you can see the piece of aluminum stock i cut to connect the light bars together:

    Hi Everyone.

    I noticed there a several of you from Manchester on here. I live there too!

    Also, for the MA guy, I lived in MA for 22 years so cool by me.

    I would be up for meeting up, going on trails, talking about our trucks, etc. :D I haven't done much for modding yet, but I certainly have plans and hope I can pull them off in the next several months.


    Glad this thread was started. I keep trying to catch up with NE B.S. thread but I haven't had the time yet.

    I'm really interested in seeing how your lights look as it seems we have a pretty similar setup.

    I have the BAMF light bar and 2 x 20" light bars.

    From the looks of your sig we have the same set up but I have just the blitzpro's ... nothing crazy for distance, mostly flood lighting. When it gets warmer I'll look at getting a transparent sheet of yellow vinyl to put over them.
    I wanted to get a 3rd but the transmission cooler that comes on the OffRoad is in the way, and I don't feel like moving it.

    How are the blitzpros? I was thinking of putting something completely transparent to protect the lights. I had to move my transmission cooler. Didn't take long to do at all.

    Thats why i am going with two lightforce 170s for distance paired with the 21" blitzpro bar. I also have a set of piaa 510s with yellow bulbs for fogs, and i have a pair of OKled flood duallys that i might mount up front as well, lol, its ganna be bright. Everything is ganna be here by friday then the fun part, wiring :frusty:
    You should throw a 3 footer in the bumper or in your light bar :cool:

    I've thought about it but I'm planning on replacing the bumper instead.

    How much did that project cost you?

    Replacing the bumper or the old light bar setup...or my new light setup? i don't even want to add those up lol.I have a CBI bumper now. That light bar was $400, its a cheap chinese one that ended up leaking on me. I had the grillcraft mesh insert over it, I forget how much that was, i bought it long before the light bar but it wasn't cheap, probably close to $100.

    Welcome, nice truck. I will probably be headed to southeast CT when it comes time to move again. Since we are talking about lights, whatcha rockin there? Looks like you did a retrofit.

    Thanks! Got the lights off a member in here (eborgie....great guy!). They're fantastic! I was going to build some but caught his post in the NE buy/sell/trade thread. They're TRS mini moto. They have halos too. Haven't hooked those up yet. Wasn't sure if I wanted to or not but figured if I dont like them, I could always unhook em. They're my favorite mod. I'll get them for every Tacoma going forward.

    Your new bumper looks sick. CBI might make it on my list of possibilities now.
