    Your off-road (or driving lights) look sweet! Did you make a d-i-y?

    The lights? or the grill? the grill i made custom. Its mesh from home depot cut and glued (a lot of glue) onto the chrome plastic of the grille. I can do a DIY if you want!

    Thanks, man! Actually, I was trying to figure out how you mounted the lights behind the grille...I thought about doing it on my truck for a while, but finally decided to just bolt my lights to the bumper cover on my truck. Now that I see yours, I'm interested in how you did it (depending on how involved the work is, I'm probably going to copy your install).:D

    Ya, from what i can recall.
    Take the front bumper off, There are two pre existing holes and the bolts that come with the 550's fit in the radiatorsupport. i wired the lights along the right hand side, by the battery, all the necessary wires going into the cab to the switch (green switch under radio on pics above)

    It was super easy!

    I wish I could mount lights behind my grill. I've always loved how that looks. Don't look like I have the room behind the grill in my 96.

    ya its nice living inland but i miss the beach, a lot.
    Its nice having it in the bed, although i don't use it much (being a prerunner without sliders or lift-able front bumper. I have used it with friends rigs and as a winch on my tow points to get out of stick situations :D)
