    Hey guys I have been toying with the idea of making mounts for Rigid Industries Duallys or D2 lights that would mount to the hood hinges from the bottom and wrap around to hold duallys. Kind of like my jeep locations. These lights are amazing for the trails and would still have a great look that will not block your view!

    GIVE ME SOME FEEDBACK!!

    And WTF??? I thought this was TACOMAworld..... not formerTACOMAowners :)

    LOL

    I'm sure that if you make it, people will buy it...

    I'm still waiting for you to use my design and make battery trays :p

    I had that set up on my Jeep and even though it looked cool it was basically useless because the lights caused to much glare on the hood (blinded me more then sunlight).
    If I had known about it before hand I would have saved the money for something else. Just my .02.

    Trust me the d2 rigid leds are not useless there is hood hood glare that's a given and it may be worse on lighter colors but the amount of light they put out makes it all worth it. It might be worse on a Tacoma I'm not sure yet but we will find out soon enough

    Kinda what I was thinking... :rolleyes:

    In front of the hood for no glare or on the roof if you really need the lights to be up higher and protected from brush.

    No glare, just light.

    Not Rigid Industries but to much glare to even drive with.

    I would love to make brackets for the 20" but not a ton of people want to pay $600-700 for a light bar, but the behind the grill brackets will work for that, im not sure how much light the grill would block with the rigids. the brackets I make for the jeeps minimize the glare here is a few quick pictures

    You're right the glare is much less then what I had. I played around with mounting the 20" behind the lower grille and it blocked some of the flood (LED's) out. I like where it sit's on the Tacoma now but I do get concerned about theft when I park out in the middle of nowhere. You may be onto something.

    Definitely a cool idea, would be a good little way to add some light. I know someone (can't remember who) made an antenna mount in the same location as you're trying to mount the D2's.
