    This is an ongoing group buy for the ANTI-DARK hood lighting kits, please read the information below before adding your name to the list. Order status is on the post below this.

    I do not accept any money until I have kits ready to ship out, no early payments.

    The most recent list can be found on one of the last pages, copy, add your name, and re-post to get on the group-buy list.


    _____________
    So what's in it?

    BASIC
    Kit: Wire, a waterproof fuse, a switch, some butt connectors, a terminal hook, a female tab, a little love, a sticker, and the LED strip... Everything you need, all In one package.
    Basic kit requires some assembly, takes less than an hour to install.

    PRO KIT: 1 Pre-assembled and pre-soldered kit with the same specifications as the Basic kit. It comes with zip ties, zip tie adhesive mounts, a sticker, and the kit, all ready to installed which takes about 30 minutes and requires only putting it in place.


    Group-Buy pricing for the kits is as follows (subject to change):
    Basic Kit $39.99 + $2.42 PayPal Transaction Fee, SHIPPED. (+$8 Canada)
    PRO Kit $59.99 + $2.42 PayPal Transaction Fee, SHIPPED. (+$8 Canada)


    Installation video's are posted below, you can use those as a reference to see the difference between the two. Note that the switch location on the PRO Kit video should be used for the BASIC Kit to.


    Here's some feedback from the people who have purchased them so far:

    I think you get the point…. :D

    INSTALLATION:
    Here is the PRO Kit installation video, this works on a 1st gen Tacoma as well (just has excess wire and different switch location). Average installation time is about 20 minutes.
    http://youtu.be/P7W0XFzAQu8

    Here is a video of what the Basic Kit installation is like (note that the switch location for a second-gen has changed to the one used in the PRO Kit). Average install time is about 40 minutes
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CVLwp4dJG_U&feature=player_embedded#at=67

    1st Gen How-To needs to be re-filmed but the concept is the same.


    I'm by no means any kind of large business, hell I don't know the first thing about business, but I do know that I love LED's and giving back to this wonderful site called TacomaWorld. By purchasing one of my kits you not only get yourself a great and useful hood lighting setup, but you also help support a vet and his family.

    If want to read the backstory on how this whole thing came together from a loosely thrown suggestion in a thread, to becoming a successful and quality kit... Here's how it all went down:
    http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/buy-sell-trade/305102-fs-led-whips-tail-gate-cb-mounts-etc.html


    Finally,
    I'd like to thank all my supporters in the first thread who were with me from start to finish, every step of the way. I'm just a regular guy, with a regular job, but as a U.S. Army Veteran trying to support my dream and my family I want to thank you all for your interest. It makes me really happy to see everyone else happy with something I made for them. That being said, if anyone has any problems, questions, or anything, PM me and I'll give you my personal cell phone number.

    Thank you!

    THE LIST:
    To get on it, find last person to post it, copy, add your name, and paste.






    Here is a list of the updates leading up to today (this is for reference purposes)
    UPDATE 4 MAY 14
    PRO kit installation video has been made! Pictures need to be taken of kit contents and then I will ship out the first 8 kits. 16 more PRO kits and 4 BASIC kits expected to be made within a couple weeks.

    Here is a video of the installation of a PRO kit, this works on a 1st gen Tacoma as well (just has excess wire and different switch location). Average installation time is about 20 minutes.

    http://youtu.be/P7W0XFzAQu8


    UPDATE 24 APR 14
    Oh haaaayyyyy, so here's an update…

    I have not sent any kits out but I have 8 PRO kits, and 2 Basic Kits in my possession (5 Warm White, 5 Cool White). Supplies for 20 more should arrive within the next week.
    This saturday I am going to install one pro kit on a friends 2nd gen to make the PRO Kit how-to video. Simultaneously, I will take pictures of everything the PRO kit and Basic Kit contain.
    Once the video is filmed, edited and put up on youtube, as well as the pictures uploaded, I will PM the first guys on the list and those who wanted the current batch of cool white.

    UPDATE 10 APR 14

    Test LED strips received, Warm White is good, Cool White is not what I want. My update can be seen on page 15.
    No kits or new how-to video ready yet.


    UPDATE 3 MAR 14
    I'm teaming up with the brains behind this mod, Shane (Mach375) to offer a new upgraded option for $20 more. This option will be 100% bolt on, and fully assembled (stay tuned for pics and how-to). All you will need to do is about 20 min of installation.
    Every wire, every connection will be soldered and heat shrunk by his flawless work. No crimping, No fuss, you will not have to pull the wires through that tiny hole, plus the kit will come with 5 year warranty.
    If you don't mind doing a little work, then the basic option will suit you fine, however, if you are not very tech savvy, don't want to screw up the assembly, or just don't feel like doing the extra work (i'd be that guy) you can go with the "PRO kit"

    Basic Kit (1 year limited warranty): $39.99 Shipped
    PRO Kit (3 year limited warranty): $59.99 Shipped
