    Just looking for confirmation. If I want to install this combo light bar in my bumper: https://www.diodedynamics.com/stage-series-30-white-light-bar.html

    Are these the correct mounting brackets? https://www.amazon.ca/2005-2015-Toyota-Tacoma-Hidden-LED/dp/B06XRQPQWZ

    With a single row LED light bar how will this setup sit behind the bumper? Will it be behind the upper or lower row of openings? Is there a reasonably priced dual row LED light bar that I should be looking at instead?

    Also, best way to relocate the front license plate and plug the holes?

    I can’t say whether that bracket would work or not but diode dynamics makes a bracket specifically for this application.

    I actually have the diode dynamics one listed for sale on here at half of the original price. I see you’re in Canada though so I don’t know about shipping costs. I can say that it fits really well though. Only removed it because I upgraded to a larger light bar.

    No dice, I have a 2nd gen. That's why I'm looking at the Cali Raised mount.

    I am in Canada. Can you please confirm if the brackets in this link are the same ones? I don't see a product number on your website to be able to verify. Thanks.

    I have the caliraised brackets along with the single row DD light bar. To be honest the brackets worked great with my double row rough country light i had but the DD bar doesn’t quite sit where I wanted it and a had to add spacers to make the bar fit. I want the bar to sit up high but the brackets won’t alow me to raise the bar up . And i have them pushed all the way up. I think im going to make my own brackets out of aluminum so they won’t rust C89557FF-2D7A-4EE0-A439-41C6956DE5C2.jpg15ADF73F-48F8-4517-A426-E1ACEC45AD29.jpg

    Thank you @TACOMA2NDGEN, that is good to know. Looks like I should be looking for a double row light bar then.
