    I got mine professional install. 60$. They leave the LED on a different wires.. it's a pain but if your good with wires you should be fine.
    about 220$ for them including shipping.

    They work just as well or better then the regular lights.

    As in getting new suspension? i have the tacoma TSB done on the suspension. I thought it was like it was regularly before the bumper. The front lower and the back higher. Maybe the bumper is just closer to the tires. Now my main concern is in 9000 miles.. when i hit 15K I'll be swapping my dun flops for Destination A/Ts 265/75/16 Hopefully the fit well!
    some pics with the height difference.

    btw all these pic are taken with my sony ericsson w810i camera phone.

    That is my December '08 dream. Congratulations on your ARB bumper it is GREAT!, hope you are enjoying it and have it handy before that kind of accident affect your truck that bad again. As asked before, did you do anything to the front suspension after the ARB bumper installation to level the truck?

    Not at all actually. The only thing that has ever been done on the front suspension is the TSB. I don't think it's necessary to beef it up unless if i installed a winch. I'll report back next to see if i have any problems.
