    I am not sure if there is a post on this yet.. I am going to add a custom grill to my taco and want to put two lights inside the grill and not a light bar. Kinda there but not there.. Does any one know of any kits for this?

    It depends on if you do it with a Grillcraft and flush with the grille surround, or if it's deep-set like mine. The only way I have seen it done with a deep set one is using the top support of the radiator (I believe it's the radiator), using some pre-drilled holes or drilling your own.

    The flush version with the Grillcraft I believe requires you to mount them to the bottom of the grille surround with aluminum. If any of this is incorrect, someone please correct me :D Good luck!

    Here's a picute of what mine looks like installed. The lights are Hella 500 Black Magic.

    Buy yourself one of these light brackets:
    http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/gr...lements-light-bar-behind-grill-group-buy.html

    They are not cheap, and I hesitated to buy one at first, but after installing it I can tell you it's worth twice the money. Solid, well thought out engineering and when the lights are installed they are solid as a rock.
