    Alternative to the traditional Raptor lights… could be wired as bright white DRL, and amber turns, or bright white always, or amber always.

    Final design won’t be held on by black electrical tape haha :fingerscrossed:

    Looks cheap in my opinion. Not sure how its supposed to be mounted on the grill, only way I would consider it, is if it was flush mounted. But even then I probably would not want it.

    It looks like he someone is trying to hard, unless they're purpose driven, all the added LEDs look silly.

    Those top three lights not being centered on the grill is giving me a rash. Can't look at it.

    would have to see them in a closer to final form. Id say if you like the look go for it. Would be unique in a sea of practically identical tacomas!

    Don’t understand the point of raptor lights ... they don’t look good and are useless. I would remove those they don’t look good.

    If they were done right, they wouldn’t be bad. But I’m not sure how one would go about doing it right....

    I have noticed that the 'one raptor light not working' look is popular... I have not seen many Toyotas with Raptor lights, but it seems that the few I've seen are rocking the look...

    On topic: I'm not digging the proposed design. Looks too 'pep-boys' if you know what I mean...

    Raptor lights are ugly and so are the other ones....but I feel that way about most added lights on a vehicle unless they actually serve a purpose

    I think it'd look best if it was just a solid horizontal bar

    but then you run the risk of Jeepers thinking you're trying to impersonate them

    Do this look instead. Your truck might even talk to you if you install the light. You could fight crime! :bananadead:
